Roots Tech 2011

For those of you interested in technology as it applies to genealogy, this conference may be for you. It requires a trip to Salt Lake City, Utah, but think of all the research you can get done while you are there. (You get a price break if you register before 7 January.)

You have never seen anything quite like this-the first annual RootsTech Conference in Salt Lake City will be in a league of its own. From the Community Zone and participant-driven unconferencing discussions to the RootsTech Playground, this conference is going to be ground-breaking and unique. Think major technology creators (Microsoft, Dell, FamilySearch,, and brightsolid) and technology users (genealogists and family history buffs) coming together in a fun, collaborative environment for three days to learn new, technology-based skills and define the future of family history through technology!

Millions of genealogists use technology daily to help them in their ancestral pursuits. Be one of the thousands of RootsTech 2011 attendees to:
• See firsthand how new and emerging technologies can improve and simplify your activities
• Help influence the future of genealogy
• Learn and share new ways to adapt technologies to genealogy
• Engage in emerging technology demonstrations
• Help leading-edge technology providers better understand your needs and how to satisfy them
There will be sessions of interest to novice, intermediate, and advanced users of genealogical technology.

The sessions will include:
• Hands-on workshops
• Interactive presentations
• Sneak peek demonstrations of new products and services
• Panel discussions
• Common interest gatherings
• Unconferencing discussions (last minute, on-the-fly sessions requested by attendees)
