RootsTech 2018 Early Bird Registration Open: Top 3 Reasons to Attend


Today is the big day – September 20th – and RootsTech 2018 registration has opened.

What are the three top reasons for attending RootsTech 2018?

#3 – Combine attendance at the #1 genealogy conference in the world with research time at the #1 genealogy library in the world.

#2 – Connect with old friends and make new ones. Really, where else can you mention the words “genealogy” or “brick wall” and not get the eye roll from a single person? Not only will you make new friends, you might run into a newly found distant cousin, or two, or three!

#1 – Learn so much from top notch speakers presenting on a wide range of family history topics.

The bonus on top of this is that it is a lot of fun!

If you are considering attending RootsTech for the first time and wonder what it is all about, here are links to posts I wrote about RootsTech 2017. I covered preparation needed beforehand, overviews of the four session days and then finished up with a review of new vendors and products seen in the Expo Hall.

The RootsTech website has posted links to some free videos of sessions recorded at last year’s conference if you’d like to get a feel for what it’s like being in the room.

Be sure to take advantage of the Early Bird discount currently on offer and be sure to make your hotel reservation as soon as possible. Rooms definitely fill up.

Disclaimer: As a RootsTech 2018 Ambassador, I receive one free registration for myself, invitations to select events, access to the media hub in the Expo Hall, plus one free registration to give away to one of my readers.
