For many years I’ve wanted to go to the RootsTech Conference in Salt Lake City.  I am always interested in learning new genealogy research skills and I would love to see what I might discover at the Family History Library with its amazing compendium of genealogy resources.  Unfortunately, getting out of Maine at the end of February can be dicey because of winter storms so I haven’t made the trip yet.

However, I did just discover that now a great deal of the Conference can be viewed online so I can at least attend virtually!  If you go to there is a schedule of programs that will be live-streamed so that you can view them for free on your computer as they are happening.  Check out the list and mark your calendar (and don’t forget the time difference).  A number of classes will also be recorded and made available on the RootsTech archives page after the event.

Finally, if you want more than the live-streamed programs, RootsTech is also offering a “virtual pass” for $129.  The pass will provide access to 18 online recorded sessions.  Here’s where you can find information about this option –

I will definitely be looking at the free live-stream sessions and may even splurge for the virtual pass.  I hope you have a chance to check some of this out.  It all sounds like a great learning opportunity.  Happy research!
