RootsTech is happening this Thursday through Saturday. Thousands of genealogists and technologists will descend on the Salt Palace Convention Center to learn more about both topics, genealogy and technology, and the places where they overlap.
A few people in our society are already registered. (Others can still register if you want to.) The Expo Hall will be open to anyone for free. But everyone else can join in as well, without even going downtown.
As in previous years, RootsTech will be live streaming the sessions in the main hall. The keynote speakers each morning and other popular topics will be available to watch online by everyone. UJGS encourages our members to tune in if they can. Additionally, the recordings will be made available after the conference for those with clashing schedules.
You may visit the RootsTech web site for more information about the conference and to see a schedule of the streaming sessions (just scroll down to find the list). The sessions will probably be streamed right on the home page, or there will be a link to them from there. You can check the schedule to read more about the streaming sessions and the rest of the conference.
In addition to the live sessions, you can also check out the syllabus notes for many sessions by clicking through to the main schedule and then looking through to each individual session; there are often both PDF and Word versions. Sometimes you can learn some great lessons just by reading the notes, even if you can’t be there to hear all the details.
