The annual RootsTech conference has always been one of my "must attend" events. After all, it combines genealogy and technology, a perfect match for this newsletter. I have always been able to obtain a lot of new information to write about at each RootsTech conference I have attended. Besides, I always have fun at RootsTech.
I normally host a dinner for readers of this newsletter after the close of each RootsTech conference. Several people have written recently and asked if there will be such a dinner again this year. Sadly, I must say, "No."
As you may have read in recent newsletter articles, I had an emergency appendectomy about a week and a half ago. I am now back at home and am recuperating. The doctor says my progress so far has been normal, although it seems slow to me. In short, I don't think I will be able to travel within three weeks. I cannot yet lift anything, such as luggage, and I am still taking recovery medication. I am afraid I will have to skip this year's RootsTech event.
Many of the RootsTech events will be broadcast live on the Web, and I certainly will be watching all of those events. However, I don't think it would be wise for me to attend in person. Therefore, I will not be hosting a dinner.
Please do me a favor: at some dinner you do enjoy at RootsTech, please hoist a glass of your favorite beverage in my absence.
I'll see you at RootsTech 2015.
