Roots Tech is like a ComicCon-style convention for family history. Celebrities who are not necessarily genealogists will keynote the event and may be available to meet. Over 200 classes are offered to educate and inspire you to take your family history one step further. And the exhibit hall is packed with live demos, new products, and resources from around the world. The only thing missing is CosPlay costumes!

RootsTech 2017 selected me to present alongside my amazing husband who rocked RootsTech last year with his class “Audacity: The Power of Audio Editing.” This year, we’ll deliver another top notch presentation over in the computer lab. If you’re ready to start writing your family histories, you need to come to our class. It will be fun and informative. You’ll also walk away having written your first story!

Our class is Session number: LAB8892 entitled “Start Writing Your Family History Today!” It’s offered Friday at 1:30 pm and again at 4:30 pm.

You’ll need to bring a birth record for one ancestor and their associated pedigree charts and group sheets. We’ll use the computers to write your story in Google Docs or Microsoft Office. And, we’ll access a few fun facts on the internet!

The class is filling up. Don’t wait to add this lab to your registration!

To select this class, you’ll find it on the schedule link (RootsTech.org/schedule). Then select Friday and then click the circle for “Add Ons to Your Pass.” You can get a One-Day Pass for Friday (or any day Thursday-Saturday) for $99 or a Full RootsTech Pass with access to the classes and Expo Hall from Wednesday to Saturday for $189. Please note, computer labs carry an additional $19 fee.

I hope to see you in Salt Lake City, Utah. We’ll be there February 9th and 10th. If you’re planning on attending, leave a comment here or shoot me an email so we can meet up! My second favorite thing about RootsTech is interacting with my genea-buddies!
