The party after the party

RootsTech is a party for genealogists.


It’s going to be at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, February 8-11, 2017, and it has more than 200 breakout sessions for all levels of experience so that the biggest challenge most of us face is deciding which to attend. The Expo Hall is jammed with exhibitors showing off the newest and best gadgets, gizmos and systems we can use to advance our family histories. The Innovator Showdown, for which The Legal Genealogist was a judge this year, gives up-and-comers in the field a shot at prize money to bring their ideas to market.

It really is a don’t-miss party for genealogists.

And then there’s the party after the party.

Last year for the first time MyHeritage threw a party after the party as RootsTech came to a close. It was by invitation only and there were a lot of people disappointed when they didn’t get an invitation to go.

MyHeritage is doing it again this year, hosting the MyHeritageDNA RootsTech After-Party to highlight its new DNA testing and give everyone a chance to let their hair down.

And, this year, five of this blog’s readers (and their guests) will get to attend.


MyHeritage has ponied up five invitations to readers of this blog, and I’ll do a random number drawing from all those who enter (by email to legalgenealogist (at) or using the Ask TLG form at the top of any page or post at The Legal Genealogist website) with the correct answer to this question:

Who’s sponsoring the MyHeritageDNA RootsTech After-Party?

a. Queen Elizabeth II
b. MyHeritageDNA
c. Elmer Fudd

No cheating now. Don’t go looking it up on Google…

Entries must be in by — let’s say — Sunday, January 22, at 11:59:59 p.m. EST, and winners will be notified by email, so make sure you have a correct working email address in your entry…
