I have taught many a class and I get countless comments on how many fellow family historians feel behind the times in technology in regards to how it relates to genealogy. The Rootstech 2012 conference is the perfect solution to that conundrum. I truly appreciate the variety of levels of skill that this conference is directed towards. We are all going at our own pace in genealogy & technology and it is nice that RootsTech addresses this. The classes and computer workshops are directed towards beginner and intermediate users, as well as, developers. The classes are original and intriguing. They are of a different variety than the ones offered at BYU Family History Conferences offered in the summer in Provo.
The fees are relatively inexpensive for a conference. The class schedule is online now. In fact, the workshops are filling up fast. Schedule your workshops today if you are planning on attending!!
Juvanne Martin, CG[SM], President of the Idaho Genealogical Society, and myself are headed to Salt Lake to try out RootsTech. So many good class topics to choose from. There is even a class on Genealogy Podcasts and Blogs 101! (Stay tuned to the blog! It only gets better!!!)
Another exciting class we plan on attending is the Help Index the 1940 U.S. Census. The IGS has been asked to assist recruiting people and help index the 1940 Census. What a great way for us to get a sneak peak into the 1940 Census!
We'll keep you posted on our adventures in SLC, RootsTech, the Keynote speakers, featured lunches, the night of comedy, and our late night at the Family History Library. (My husband wonders why I get so excited about late nights in the library! To some it's boring. However, it's like candy to me! If they did an over-nighter at the Library you wouldn't have to ask me twice to sign-up!)
Act now - RootsTech. You won't regret it. So many things to look forward to...
