MyHeritage Gears Up For RootsTech 2023

The MyHeritage logo starts with the silhouette of a tree that is embedded into two circles. Next to the tree it says MyHeritage.

MyHeritage is beyond excited to be preparing to head to Salt Lake City for the first RootsTech on-site conference since 2020 -but if you can’t join in person, it will be taking place virtually, too!

RootsTech is the biggest genealogy event of the year, taking place between March 2-March 4, and just like every year, we’ll be there with lots of great lectures, raffles, cool prizes, activities, and of course, exciting announcements.

In pre-COVID-times, RootsTech drew tens of thousands of family history enthusiasts to Salt Lake City for several intensive days of learning, discovery and inspiration. The conference went virtual in 2021 and 2022, attracting millions of remote attendees from all over the world. This year, they’re combining the best of both worlds by offering a hybrid conference experience: in-person and online.

RootsTech is the perfect opportunity to hone your skills, discover new resources, tools, and techniques, and meet other family history enthusiasts like yourself. We’ve prepared a top-notch roster of expert lecturers who will be speaking on a multitude of topics. Plus, you get a chance to learn from and chat with our phenomenal staff, including genealogy experts, support specialists, and more.

Register on the RootsTech website for the in-person or virtual conference experience. Attending remotely is completely free. One way or another, we can’t wait to see you there!

MyHeritage Session Speakers at RootsTech 2023 include:

Ilan Melchior: Country Manger for MyHeritage in Denmark. He grew up in Copenhagen and from a very early age has been interested in family history and where he comes from. One side of his family originates from Northern and Eastern Europe, while the other side has roots in Iraq and the Middle East. He has taken an interest in his family’s history and background into his role at MyHeritage, where he helps to ensure that Danish MyHeritage users have the best possible experience with their own genealogy and DNA research.

Judit Rudas: My name is Judit Rudas. I come from Budapest, Hungary. I moved to Israel seven years ago. I have been working at MyHeritage for almost six years as a customer service representative. My area of expertise is invoicing, which enables me to find solutions to various payment problems and to manage the ordering and possible replacement of DNA sets. I really like to help. It gives me a good feeling when our users are satisfied with the resolution of any complications that may arise. It’s wonderful that I can talk to people who “come” to us from all over the world, and that gives me the opportunity to see different cultures. It’s great to see how our users build and expand their family trees and how MyHeritage helps them find the connection between past and present. I am proud to be a member of MyHeritage and happy to represent MyHeritage in Hungarian at Rootstech.

Jacob Levine: Jacob works as a customer care representative who helps our users at MyHeritage with research and technical questions. He lived all over the world exploring many different places and cultures. Researching unknown relatives is very interesting to him and he enjoys doing it on the MyHeritage platform. Besides research, he also enjoys creating music and watching old movies.
