16 Tree Building Classes at #RootsTech 2018

Build Your Family Tree at #RootsTech 2018

One can not research their genealogy without the use of a family tree organizational chart. RootsTech has 11 classes on the main track and six classes on the Getting Started Pass that focus on tree building. Some classes are specific to a website, and others combine tree building with other beginning genealogy tasks. All workshops focus on helping you make connections to your relatives.

The FamilySearch Town Hall actually doesn't fit the "Family Tree" category regarding tree building. In the past, senior executives take questions and answers regarding the future of the FamilySearch website. Some topics become LDS-centric. Be advised, just in case that isn't want you're looking for.  The Future of FamilySearch class is usually a highlight of my visit to RootsTech because I love knowing where the site is going and the speaker is very entertaining and knowledgeable.
