A First Look at RootsTech

100% Virtual, 100% Free.
3–5 March 2022.
more than 1,500 sessions on 185 topics in over 30 languages.

A huge event makes it easy to get lost. What is there of interest to your family history?

There are nine keynote presentations and 20 speakers who will present live. The diversity is evident in that I only recognize two of those names. Those presentations go on almost around the clock reflecting the needs of a global audience.

Most presentations are recorded and they’re not the conventional 50 minutes plus 10 minutes for questions. Instead, 20 minutes is more typical, some less.

The presenters I recognize from the UK and Ireland include Dave Annal, Else Churchill, Myko Clelland, Gerald Corcoran, Jackie Depelle, Brian Donovan, Beryl Evans, Janet Few, Stephen Gill, Caroline Gurney, Gillian Hunt, Debbie Kennett, Michelle Leonard, Paul Nixon, Aoife O Connor, Alison Spring, and Penny Walters. I checked a few and they were already available to play. Go to www.familysearch.org/rootstech/home, click on the menu at the top right, select speakers and scroll or search for the speaker of interest.

There’s more than presentations. Details will come on the website. Expect announcements from the major sponsors so you’ll need to attend live to catch the latest, and perhaps find out about specials.

  1. Thanks for this list…I went through twice adding UK based sessions to my playlist, but each time I checked, they’d disappeared *sigh*…I’m bookmarking this post instead 🙂
