Still Learning from RootsTech

You say you missed RootsTech, the big genealogy and gen-technology conference in Salt Lake City this weekend? The conference is over now but the opportunity to learn from the presenters continues.

I'm not a tech person so those sessions weren't of interest to me. However, there were plenty of genealogy sessions that I would like to have attended. Not having been able to do so, the next best option is to read the syllabus and take out any information that is helpful to me.

RootsTech has made the syllabi for each session available whether you attended the conference or not. It's not the same as being there, not the same as listening to the presenter in person and asking questions at the end, but the syllabi offer some good information.

Go to the RootsTech Sessions Schedule and scroll down through the Thursday list or click the tab at the top to look at the Friday or Saturday sessions. When you find one that interests you, click on the session title. If a syllabus is available you'll see two options for downloading it. With 12-15 sessions per time period you're sure to find some content that interests you.

At RootsTech there's a tab, "Full Archives Coming Soon." Don't miss the keynote addresses from Thursday and Friday as well as the Saturday afternoon session, "Future of FamilySearch Family Tree." Excellent! And then choose from the other presentations. Enjoy, learn.


  1. I also went through the syllabus and down loaded those that were of interest to em. Roots Tech was so much fun, and a greta learning experience! I love it, and that was only from my perspective ~ attending from home also!

  2. O.K. I'm going to check this out. Thanks for the information.

  3. my Heritage Happens, I wonder if I would have been completely overwhelmed had I been there. Information overload, maybe. Which syllabi did you download? Which live presentations did you enjoy most?

    Christine, I hope you find something helpful.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
