22 International Classes Available at # RootsTech 2018

Last year one of the cool features was International Alley in the Expo Hall where various ethnic organizations that helped research in international locations had booths. Andy and Devon Noel filmed interviews with the vendors from China, Italy, and Ukraine. For RootsTech attendees, our families are global and it's nice to see 22 classes dedicated to international locales.
