RootsTech 2023: Online

Following on from my previous post reporting on my personal highlights of being boots on the ground in Salt Lake City for RootsTech, here is a short taster of the classes that I’ve been able to catch up on using RootsTech On Demand …

Relatives at RootsTech will remain active until the end of March so make those connections whilst you can. At the last count, I had 26,820 – although I have a few 3rd and 4th cousins, they quickly drop off to 6 + generations removed with most being 8th or 10th cousins. I also don’t entirely trust the connections back at that level.

Another reminder that the date for RootsTech 2024 has been set and you can add it to your diaries now!
