Hi Everyone!

RootsTech 2014 LogoJust a reminder that the 2014 version of RootsTech will take place on February 6 to February 8, 2014 in Salt Lake City, UT.

Dick Eastman just had a recent post about the upcoming streaming online classes that can be accessed from the upcoming 2014 conference.  You can see that post with the information here:

2014 RootsTech Online Streaming Available Classes

This has proven to be  a wildly successful major genealogical conference that brings together genealogy researchers and genealogy software developers under one roof.  Estimates indicate that about 9,000 attendees were present for the 2013 conference.  Of the 9,000, 2,000 were teens that attended a special program targeted for youth.  In addition, another 14,000 individuals participated online via programs that were streamed.  This is truly a major event in the world of genealogy!!  The above statistics were gotten from a Dick Eastman blog post from March 25, 2013.  You can read the entirety of Dick’s blog post about RootsTech 2013 here:

You can view their website for information about this 2014 RootsTech Conference at:

RootsTech 2014

If you want to know more about what RootsTech in general is all about, visit the following link to a series of 16 Videos produced by RootsTech from their 2013 program.   These are videos of stunning quality!  I think you may want to look at what the videos showcase about what RootsTech is all about.  They may not all be at a very specific research level, they are often at a “larger view” of what technical developments are occurring that connect to genealogical research.

You can really get the “big picture” by looking at any one of the videos.

Take a look at these videos at:

Enjoy the 2013 videos.

Consider going to Salt Lake City, UT to connect with the soon to take place 2014 version of RootsTech!  (It may be a little hard for you to hop on that big plane right now since I am issuing this post with some new online streaming class availability information on February 3, 2014!!)
