Follow-Up: You are Invited to Join Me and Other Newsletter readers for Dinner after the RootsTech Conference

This is a quick reminder: If you would like to join me and a number of other genealogists for dinner immediately following the RootsTech conference, reservations are required. You need to sign up no later than midnight, local Salt Lake City time, on Tuesday, February 25 as I have to tell the hotel the next morning how many meals to prepare. The hotel staff will then order the appropriate amount of food.

Details may be found in my earlier article at: https://blog.eogn.com/2020/02/18/you-are-invited-to-join-me-and-other-newsletter-readers-for-dinner-after-the-rootstech-conference/.

To sign up for the dinner, go to: http://bit.ly/39PypKf.

See you there!

On the Road Again, This Time to RootsTech in Salt Lake City

This is a quick notice to let you know there may not be as many articles as normal posted in this newsletter in the next week or so. If you have been reading this newsletter for some time, you already know that I often travel to genealogy conferences.

I will be in Salt Lake City, Utah for the next week. I will be attending the annual RootsTech conference. For details about this conference, see my earlier article at https://blog.eogn.com/2020/02/11/will-i-see-you-at-rootstech-2020/ as well as the RootsTech web pages at https://www.rootstech.org/salt-lake. Of course, I will be attending the Saturday-evening-after-the-conference dinner. See https://blog.eogn.com/2020/02/18/you-are-invited-to-join-me-and-other-newsletter-readers-for-dinner-after-the-rootstech-conference/ for details on that dinner. I hope to see you at the dinner!

I hope to write about the conference events that I see and attend. I suspect I will also post a number of photographs of the conference in this newsletter while I am there. Who knows? I may even get to attend a few presentations!

I should be back home by March 2.

Stay tuned!
