RootsTech was Just the Right Medicine

As a genealogy and family history event planner I don’t always get to attend the classes and take notes at our Expos because I’m so busy with administrative responsibilities. It was a real pleasure to attend classes every hour, to meet and greet friends and bloggers in the exhibit hall. The days flew by so fast it is amazing. This was just the shot in the arm I needed as we are planning our next events. We got the scoop on what is new with FamilySearch and we can bring that to you via... Read More →
