Much of RootsTech to continue on for a year

Although some of the features of the RootsTech Connect 2021 website will end on February 27, 2021, much of the website, including the Sessions or classes will continue on at least until next year's RootsTech 2022. What has been discussed by many people, there is still an open question about whether or not RootsTech 2022 will have an "onsite" component. Given the time and effort that went into RootsTech Connect 2021, I am guessing that the next conference will look similar to 2020 with additional resources and perhaps some different venues. The one most important factor in this decision should be the global reach of this first virtual RootsTech conference. With over 1000 presentations, the existing website will become a major repository of genealogical information for as long as it is available. 

By the way, I actually have several of my own videos in the huge pile of classes or presentations on this year's website. They are all part of The Family History Guide and if you do a search for "The Family History Guide" in the Sessions section, you will see most of our videos. There are two more that are part of the Main Stage presentations. We now have about 130 videos on our The Family History Guide YouTube Channel also. Many of these videos can be viewed in up to 7 different languages. We will be expanding the language coverage in the future. 

So, if you feel like you missed something then you probably didn't. Make sure you make a playlist and work through it. It will be worth your time and any effort.
