If you are involved in genealogy research in more than just a casual capacity you have probably heard of the RootsTech Conference that FamilySearch puts on in Salt Lake City every year. It’s one of the biggest, if not the biggest, annual genealogy conferences in the world and it usually costs a good bit of cash to attend. They often put on international genealogy conferences as well. For example, there was one scheduled for next year in London that has been cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But this year, for the first time, RootsTech is going virtual! The conference will be held completely online from February 25th through February 27th, 2021, and here’s the really good news: ITS COMPLETELY FREE!
Interested? We hope you are and that you don’t miss this terrific opportunity. For more information and to register, follow this link: https://www.rootstech.org/?lang=eng
Did we happen to mention it’s FREE???
