Rootstech from a Comfy Cozy Chair!

It's February and besides The Family History Writing Challenge it also means it's time for Rootstech. For those of us not able to join in the excitement in Salt Lake City this year, Rootstech will once again be offering live video streaming of the conference. There is a wonderful line-up planned for the next 3 days with a great cross-section of topics.

How to watch from home?

 Click on www.rootstech.org  Live streaming begins tomorrow morning, Thursday Feb 6th at 8:30 am. As soon as the streaming begins you should immediately view, no registration required, nothing special on your part. Just sit back and enjoy the learning from some of the best genealogists in the industry. 

Keep in mind this schedule is in Mountain Standard Time. If you are in the Eastern Time Zone, such as myself we are two hours ahead. For example, 10:30am lecture is 12:30 for me. If you are not sure of the time difference in your area, use an online time zone converter
