Check this out. It's the WHY you should attend RootsTech video (just click on the arrow above!)

Hello? Did you see that? It's little 'ol me. 
I think I should probably email Donny Osmond, don't you? I think I'll just say something like, "Hey Donny, it was great being in the video with you, let me know if you want to do lunch!"

Seriously though, I'm THRILLED that I get to be a part of RootsTech 2016. I'll be a social media ambassador (again) which was beyond fun and I'll also be teaching a new (updated) class called, Making Family Connections Memorable. I teach on Friday, February 5th at 3:00pm. 

Registration is now OPEN. <--- You can click right there to learn more and register!


I first attended RootsTech in 2013 with some of my BPC team (Mark, Wendy and Angie.) We were impressed with the breadth of classes they offered and with the number of people attending. If I remember right, there were almost 7,000 there. I remember thinking, how cool would it be to teach here? Little did I know that two years later I would have that opportunity, and that there would be nearly 20,000 people in attendance. I'd say there is a growing interest in Connecting Families Across Generations (that's the RootsTech tagline.)

If you're interested in discovering information about your ancestral family or you want to learn how to better document your life and stories for posterity. RootsTech is now the premiere event to attend. There are hundreds of classes to take and perhaps even more booths to visit and learn from. I was flabbergasted at the resources available to me that I did not know existed. 

But, the thing is, you don't want to wait too long to make a decision to come, and then to register. Now is the time! Trust me, with this many people there is plenty of energy and excitement to go around, but classes fill up quickly—especially classes with computers that are designed to help you with specific genealogy search-related challenges. So if that is what you're needing, register as soon as possible. 

And, if you have questions about attending, I'm here. I'd be more than happy to reply to emails or comments that you leave below, and if I can't answer your questions, I'll forward them to my friend Donny!
