You Are There - Roots Tech Conference

rootstech RootsTech is the largest genealogy conference/seminar/expo in North America. It begins on Thursday, February 6 in Salt Lake City, Utah and runs through February 8th. The fourth-year conference (its started in 2011) already has more than 10,000 people signed up to attend. There will be many instructional sessions to help the newbie to the experience family history researcher.

A super great aspect is that 15 of those instructional sessions will be broadcast on the Internet, all free and live as it happens. If you have a good speed Internet connection, you view any or all of those broadcast sessions in your own home. The selected sessions range from technology to various family history presentations.

Here is the link to see the full schedule of the 15 sessions, the day and times for each. An important reminder, since it is broadcast live, the times are based on Mountain Standard Time.
