#RootsTech 2017 in Brief: Notes from the Conference -- #16
This is the last day of RootsTech 2017. The first keynote speaker is Tim Sullivan, CEO of Ancestry.com. Ancestry's emphasis is on DNA. Tim speaks about the investigations made by Ancestry.com into migration and communities. The number of genetic communities will increase as the number of DNA tests are included in the database.
The rest of the Keynote was directed at food and family recipes. I have mentioned that when I married into the Wessman family, I got the bonus of generations of food experiences and recipes. You can see some of these recipes on our food blog: Family Heritage Recipes.
Today is Family Discovery Day starting in the afternoon. Along with a lineup of leaders and celebrities there is a cake decorating contest.
