In 2016, I attended RootsTech and found that finding my favorite genealogists in the massive Salt Palace Conference center was so difficult. The genealogy rock stars were teaching, networking, dashing in different directions, and I had trouble finding one particular blogging icon. Having had this experience, I wanted to make it possible to lock down an hour with some of my favorite genealogy folks for you if you’ll stop by my booth #1952 at RootsTech!
To kick off the Meet & Greet, each genealogy rock star will have a 10-minute interview for the Family History Fanatics YouTube channel. Once that’s over, you get to take over the meeting
- Thomas MacEntee
- Elizabeth O’Neal
- Randy Seaver
- Amy Johnson Crow
- Lisa Alzo
- Michael L Strauss
- Jill Ball
- Family Locket – Nicole Dyer and Diane Elder
If you have a topic you’d like me to ask of any of these folks, let me know in the comments section below. Otherwise, Andy, Caleb, and I will ask about topics we know these folks enjoy sharing their knowledge on.
So, stop by, say hi, and take photos with your genealogy rock stars.
