RootsTech 2020 is Next Week!!



I’m so excited for next week!!

RootsTech is always fantastic but this special 10 year anniversary RootsTech is bound to be extra-special!


My Presentation

If you are planning to be there, please join me for my presentation, “After the Scan — Online Preservation Your Family Can Find,” on Wednesday at 9:30 am in room 151.  Please say hello afterward, I would love to meet you.


Survival Guides

There are lots of great survival guides out there.  RootsTech put out their own survival guide again this year, you can read that here.

I wrote a list of simple tips last year that you can read here.



Plan well so you can make the most of your RootsTech experience.  Choose classes ahead of time and print out or download the syllabi.  Learn more about that here.

I tend to over-plan a bit, but it always pays off.  You can read about my overly detailed, super nerdy schedule planning here.


RootsTech Musts

  • Don’t skip the Expo Hall.  I know it’s busy, but so much genealogy goodness happens in there, spend time wandering and learning.
  • Plan to visit the Family History Library.
  • Download the RootsTech Mobile app.

Those three are make-or-break items.


RootsTech From Home

Some of you won’t be there.  That’s okay, join in the fun from home!  Here is the free livestream schedule.  Additional classes will be recorded and show up in the video archive after RootsTech ends.

Curious what you might find in the video archive?  Check it out here!



Happy Monday, I hope your week includes some genealogy awesomeness!!  xoxo
