RootsTech is the largest genealogy conference/seminar/expo in North America. It starts next week on Thursday, February 6. The fourth-year conference already has more than 10,000 pre-registered attendees and there will be a few more tickets sold at the door. If you can be in Salt Lake City next week, I strongly urge you to attend. However, if you cannot attend in person, you can stay at home or anyplace else that has an Internet connection and 15 of its more popular sessions will be broadcast live and free of charge over the Internet. Actually, 15 sessions is only a fraction of the total number of sessions available. However, the conference organizers obviously have picked the sessions they believe will have the widest appeal. The streamed sessions include a sampling of technology and family history presentations. More than 20,000 additional viewers are expected to watch the sessions online.
A list of all the broadcast sessions and speakers may be found at https://familysearch.org/node/2519. Please note that all times are in Mountain Standard Time (MST).
