Gearing Up for RootsTech 2018 – Registration Day

It is definitely winter in Salt Lake City, but even though it doesn’t look warm and sunny, the temperature isn’t too bad.

Yesterday morning was the start of Family History Library research time and I made good use of the shortened hours, as the library closes at 5:00 on Mondays. That left plenty of time for some retail therapy at Nordstrom.

RootsTech 2018 registration opened at noon today. The lure was to miss the long lines and register early.

That didn’t quite happen. The line snaked in rows up to the check in counter and from where I stood, it was an hour and ten minutes of chatting with friends until we reached the counter.

This, however, was nothing compared to the line behind us that eventually reached all the way down to the opposite end of the convention center!

There were hundreds of people still registering in the evening.

Since I am blogging from Salt Lake, the posts for the next few days will all go live later in the evening. Early next week, I will post my annual vendor information. This year there are SIXTY new companies in the Expo Hall.

This year’s RootsTech is going to be great!

  1. You captured it all beautifully. I love the new art work on the wall. Never seen it before. People were very patiently waiting in the line. I was impressed that tempers were held. It got very hot in there. Love the bags they gave out this year. Lot’s of information in there. My favorite is an information brochure put out by Federation of Family History Societies. Information plus.
    Looking forward to tomorrow.
