RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry I hope this is the right spot. What a great way to learn the best way to do your research.
Roots Tech 2018 Contest Entry. This is the most unbelievable conference I have ever attended. Why?? The people you meet who are there for the same reason you are. The unlimited classes you can attend. Classes for every level of genealogy.
Technology Expo Hall, with the most up to date information and product information. I come away inspired to go home and use my new skills and polished old skills to continue my own family tree.
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry. I would love to connect with the vendors, speakers, and attendees. Each have a wealth of knowledge to share. I feel like I can learn so many new tips and tricks for all these resources. I would love to go to RootsTech.

I want to attend RootsTech because collaboration is vital to my
genealogical research. At RootsTech, I expect to meet genealogy
friends and acquaintances from online, podcasters whom I’ve listened
to, and meet new and interesting people just as passionate about their
family research as I am. Genealogy can be a solo job, but for it to be
strong, filled out research, we need the community! As a fairly young
genealogist (I only recently turned 30), I have a lot to learn about
the on-the-ground research, but I have become pretty fluent in genetic
genealogical research and the ins and outs of using technology for my
genealogical pursuits. I was also recently accepted into the Mayflower
Society, as a descendant of William Brewster. This year has been a
brilliant one for my research, and I’m so excited for RootsTech 2018!

I am in love with Family History. It became a passion and almost addiction in 2015. I so much want to attend the RootsTech conference live and take it all in! I want to learn new tools of researching and teaching my kids about family history as well.
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry – Thanks for this chance to win a pass to #RootsTech2018 I’ve been before, but not for the last couple of years, and would love to go again. I really enjoy the classes, especially the ones on DNA as that is such a complicated topic. The more help I get on understand it, the better. I love the Expo Hall and Keynotes speeches too! It also super fun to connect with my genealogy online friends IRL!
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry – This would be an absolute amazing chance to be able to go to RootsTech. I have never been before but have wanted to go every year.
RootsTech 2018 Comtest Entry – When I am able to attend, I love learning about all the new technology that is made available to us genealogists. This year the funds are low because we had to move, we actually bought a mobile home with a lot of issues that we were not made aware of.
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry. Every time I go to the Family History Library, I make important discoveries. After years of hearing about how great RootsTech is, I’m excited to finally go and attend classes such as “That First Trip to the Courthouse,” because I’ll be visiting several courthouses next year.
Just wanted to update my contact info for the RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry via this reply because I’m not currently using the WordPress account for “anniewritesabout.” Thanks!
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry. I want to go to RootsTech because I love the feeling of being part of a community! I love the atmosphere and I love learning more.
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry I would be great to go to RootsTech.
It would be a first time for me. Thanks for providing this opportunity.
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry: Luv the Vendors’ Hall! I come with a list of questions for the various vendors, map out my route and visit each and every one until I have exhausted my list. I then go to Genealogy Gems and learn from their short sessions, do the same at FindMyPast’s booth, visit the with Ancestry and FamilySearch folks and take in a few classes, this year will be concentrating on DNA classes. This conference is the best and the only one that is this far west and accessible to us west coasters.

There are so many reasons why I would love to win a RootsTech pass! I’m ready to start attending national conferences and take my education and genealogical knowledge to the next level. There’s nothing like convening in one spot for a few days of full genealogical immersion! Should I win, this will be my first national conference, and what a way to start!
Additionally, I would love the opportunity to meet so many of the wonderful genealogists that have become part of my social media community. Many have become mentors and I learn so much from people all over the country. With so many attending RootsTech, it would be the perfect opportunity to meet them in person.
Finally, I adore Humans of New York and would be thrilled to hear Brandon speak! His insight into the human condition is one that I think translates well into the genealogical realm!
Thank you, and good luck to everyone!
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry. Looking forward to heading back to Salt Lake City for another funfilled week of Family History TIPS AND TRICKS!!
RootsTech 2018 Contest Entry. I’ve been wanting to attend RootsTech for so many years and have been watching the online sessions from my distant genealogy research chair every year. I moved much closer to Utah this summer and have been hoping to find a way to go. It sounds like a great way to meet my “peeps” and just spend some time learning without the other distractions of life.
