RootsTech 2022 stays virtual

The Legal Genealogist is now fully into institute season — teaching at genealogical institutes all over.

Today, it’s one of my favorites — the Midwest African American Genealogy Institute (MAAGI).

On tough topics like slavery, north and south.

I love it, no matter how tough it is… but it does leave so little time for anything else…

You know… like cleaning house.

Or changing the cat box.

Or — sigh — blogging.

So… snippets.


As time permits.

About genealogy things.

Things like a big announcement from FamilySearch about RootsTech in 2022. This has been the biggest genealogy conference anywhere, early each year in Salt Lake City, but of course converted to virtual for 2021.

It was such a success in that virtual format, it’s staying virtual in 2022.

The announcement today begins:

FamilySearch today announced that RootsTech Connect 2022 will take place on March 3–5, 2022, as a fully virtual family history event. After welcoming over one million visitors from over 240 countries to its 2021 online event, RootsTech Connect 2021 was the largest in the history of RootsTech, and spectacular proof of humanity’s interest globally in discovering our roots and connecting to each other. Building on its success, RootsTech Connect 2022 will remain completely virtual and free. Registration will open in September 2021.

You can read the full annnouncement at the FamilySearch Newsroom here.

Now… back to institute classes…

More snippets to come.
