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.

 

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.
