Did you miss out on RootsTech 2014? You might be able to attend RootsTech 2015. It will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, in February of 2015. Those of you who would need to travel in order to attend this huge genealogy conference may want to start planning ahead. You can now register for RootsTech 2015.
RootsTech describes itself as “a global family history event, where people of all ages learn to discover, share and celebrate their family connections across generations through technology”. It is a great place for genealogists, family historians, and the people who build and maintain genealogy related websites and apps to get together.
FamilySearch, the popular genealogy website that is maintained by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, hosts RootsTech each year. It is worth noting that RootsTech is independent of the FamilySearch affiliate program. The speakers who will appear at RootsTech are selected by independent committees.
