RootsTech 2016 – Expo Hall Discoveries, Part 2

This is my last post on RootsTech 2016. I’ll share information on a few more products along with several Expo Hall shots and that will be it.

Alphabetically, here are those in the second half:

Our Family Storybook provides a range of services, from creating family websites, blog hosting, and collaborating with family members on projects to creating and publishing a family book. GEDCOMS can also be uploaded to this site.

This company’s purpose is to allow clients to create an engaging way to share their family story and draw family members into the family history fold.

There were obviously many more vendors than the few I have chosen to spotlight. I was a bit too lazy to dig back through last year’s similar post to review the products about which I wrote, but I think this are mostly new-to-me companies.

To close out your RootsTech 2016 tour with me, here are a few more photos from around the Expo Hall:

The Software MacKiev booth was very busy after Ancestry announced that MacKiev had acquired Family Tree Maker and that it has been given a new life.

A favorite with those of Swedish ancestry is ArkivDigital.

The first stop for most with New England ancestry is the New England Historical Genealogical Society.

BackBlaze sponsored the demo theater, which had constant short programs going on.

Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems is always a popular stop;

The National Genealogical Society is a membership organization that provides a full range of top notch genealogical services, ranging from their quarterly publication to genealogical education.

I will end our visit to RootsTech 2016 with one more worthy project that had a booth this year.

Preserve the Pensions is doing a great job, but they are still seeking donations to finish up the project. Over 4,000,000 images are done and 59% of the needed funds have been raised.

If you were unable to attend RootsTech 2016 in person, I hope you have enjoyed a visit through my eyes. If you were undecided about attending, I highly recommend marking your calendar for February 8-11, 2017, when RootsTech 2017 will convene again in Salt Lake City.
