What is RootsTech?
The first annual RootsTech Conference will be a gathering of both family history enthusiasts and technologists from around the world. Genealogy hobbyists and professionals alike will discover new and emerging technologies that will improve and simplify their activities. At the same time, technology providers will enjoy a rare, face‐to‐face opportunity to interact with family history enthusiasts to better understand their needs.I am sure you are asking yourself, why would anyone leave nice warm sunny Mesa, Arizona to go to Salt Lake City, Utah in the middle of the winter? Good question, but the list of presenters and classes is outstanding and will be well worth the trip and the time spent.
Combining the Conference on Computerized Family History, the Technology Workshop, and the FamilySearch Developers Conference, RootsTech will foster innovation for years to come as genealogists looking for solutions share their challenges with high‐tech innovators eager to develop new applications for their technologies.
