RootsTech – The P...

A huge attraction of going to any genie event for me is meeting the people. Catching up with friends that you see only occasionally, and making new ones along the way. And that’s exactly what I did again while I was at the RootsTech/FGS Conference this year. So here’s a photo...

RootsTech – Day 3...

Saturday was the last day of the RootsTech, which was Day 3 for many (and Day 4 if you had attended FGS as well) – either way, the days of talks and walking the Expo Hall (or in my exhibiting), followed by social events in the evening were starting to catch up with everyone....

RootsTech – Day 2...

Day 2 of RootsTech fell on Friday the 13th, but it certainly didn’t bring any bad luck to attendees at RootsTech. With a full day of talks that began at 8.00am and continued through until late afternoon, and the exhibit hall open from 10.00am until 7.00pm – today was the day...

RootsTech – The B...

Genealogy conference bling is something that I first learnt about at RootsTech 2013 as it’s not something that we do in Australia, though I’d love it if the idea was picked up, but somehow I doubt it. Anyway I find that the conference bling is part of what makes the...

RootsTech – Day 1...

Thursday 12th of February was the first day of RootsTech. The first day that talks started, and the first day that the Expo Hall was open for business. And to say it was a crazy day would be an understatement. The place was swarming with people. The day started early with my roommate...

RootsTech – Setup...

Wednesday the 11th of February was setup day for exhibitors at RootsTech. Wednesday the 11th of February was also the first of four days of the FGS conference. Going as an exhibitor (Unlock the Past Cruises), obviously my focus was the setting up of the stand. I must say that having been...

Pre-RootsTech – A...

The FGS Conference runs for four days (Wednesday-Saturday), while the RootsTech one is three (Thursday-Saturday). So with a day to spare before set up and the FGS Conference talks start, it was nice to have a quiet day (which in some respects probably translates to trying to get over...

RootsTech – Let&#...

RootsTech is one of those events that has been on my bucket list ever since I heard how exciting the first one was. One of those “would-be-nice-to-do- but-never-really-expecting-to” things. Afterall America is SUCH a long way away (over 24 hours of flying), and it does cost a...

FGS and RootsTech: The ...

It’s hard to believe but it is now less that a month until the genealogy-world heads to Salt Lake City for RootsTech, with the added bonus of the Federation of Genealogical Studies (FGS) Conference this year. That’s 4 days of FGS Conference, and 3 whole days RootsTech....

FGS and RootsTech 2015 ...

Can you believe that it is less than 5 months until the FGS and RootsTech Conferences. Actually 4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days according to my countdown timer. That’s right folks, it’s not long, and we even have Christmas before that. So the time is guaranteed to fly by!...
