RootsTech Free Broadcast Schedule Times for Sydney, AUS

For all us who live in and around Sydney, Australia, and who are not able to attend RootsTech this year, using https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/ I have uploaded a schedule of the Australian Eastern Daylight Times for the broadcasting of the free RootsTech Broadcasts.

How wonderful is technology that, while I can’t be there in person in Salt Lake City, I can actually watch some of the presentations “live” from my own home.

RootsTech 2018

This time last year I was excitedly preparing to attend my first ever RootsTech in Salt Lake City.

Not being able to attend this year is definitely a bummer, but none-the-less the excitement is starting to build as the days countdown and I can look forward to watching several live presentations at home (even though it means setting the alarm clock for mostly middle-of-the-night viewing here in Australia).

As a Remote Ambassador for RootsTech 2018 I am also privileged to be able to read through the handouts submitted for the various talks on offer. All I can say, is, there is a great lineup of speakers that will be presenting an amazing variety of talks. I am especially impressed with the variety of European content as well as the excellent hands-on Labs.

RootsTech just goes from strength to strength each year and, with the quality of this year’s event, it will be a hard act to follow in 2019 when I will once again be able to attend in person.

Of course, a big thank you must go out to the hard-working and dedicated team operating behind-the-scenes to bring each RootsTech to fruition.

 

Eight Reasons to Attend RootsTech

I recently received an email from the RootsTech 2018 team that shows the 8 best reasons to attend a RootsTech conference and which I wholeheartedly agree with –

  • RootsTech is a Community
  • It Sharpens Your Skills
  • Takes In the Family History Horizon
  • Brings Your Family History Life
  • Builds Relationships
  • Shows Where Genealogy and Technology Intersects
  • Learn Your Story
  • Incorporates Family History into Your Daily Life

RootsTech 2018

While I am super excited that I will again be an Ambassador in 2018 for RootsTech,  it is obviously disappointing that I won’t be attending live.

Instead, I will be a Remote Ambassador from Australia for what I believe is THE most important annual genealogical conference available to genealogists worldwide.

Today I caught up with Lilian Magill – a regular RootsTech attendee also from Australia – and, with me being home-bound for RootsTech 2018, as well as Lilian, we thought a RootsTech sleepover for the Live Streaming might be a great idea.

This idea was sprouted because of the time difference between Salt Lake City, USA,  and Sydney, Australia.

So … now to garner further interest among the many other genies who can’t make it to SLC in 2018.

 

Jim and Elsie’s 1978 Tour – Day 93

Sunday, 2 July 1978

Fine, warm, cloudy

Car to hotel. Dropped bags. To Holland Park – nobody there 3.00. Wrote on the delivery slip and left through door.

Walked to Kensington Palace saw State apartments.

Back to hotel. Elsie did some letter writing. I checked accounts to come.

 

[END OF DIARY]

What an amazing adventure Jim and Elsie must have had – and it didn’t end here. After departing London they had 6 nights in Hong Kong on their way home.
