Largest Genealogy Conference
This past year was the first time I attended one of the largest genealogy conferences in the world, RootsTech 2018. While I was very, and I mean very busy working at one of the vendor booths I still had some opportunity to see and hear all the excitement. You can’t help but get that “WOW” feeling in the pit of your stomach as you walk through the front doors of the Salt Palace Convention Center.
Imagine my excitement when I received the notification that I was selected as one of the RootsTech 2019 Ambassadors. What a great opportunity to share with all of you the excitement building up to the event and the event itself. So yes, this will be the first of many blog posts, videos and more to come.
Today I want to bring you up to date on a few details that I’m sure you don’t want to miss out on. So, let’s start at the beginning what do say. Salt Lake City RootsTech 2019 will be taking place February 27th thru the 2nd of March, of course in Salt Lake City, Utah. Don’t worry you haven’t missed registration, it opens on the 20th of September, that’s right TOMORROW. For a limited time, they will have exclusive early bird pricing for your passes so keep your eyes open.
So, what’s next you might ask well booking those flights and hotel rooms. No worries I have you covered here in the hotel rooms. Below you will find direct links to some of the surrounding hotels along with their address and phone numbers. I urge you to call and reserve your rooms first because they do go quickly.
