    Roots Tech is so large and exciting I am not sure where to start. As time gets closer I will make a plan and try not to follow too many shiny objects. The first thing is to orient myself to the convention center and the class areas. I would like to learn more about breaking down brick walls and a bit on understanding and using DNA. The newest subject for me is learning how to write up all of the information I have and sourcing it so it is interesting to someone other then me.

    I love Roots Tech! It’s not only a great place to learn about everything genealogy, but the best place to meet and network with everyone in the genealogy world!

    I have been to many genealogy conventions over the years, but nothing compares with Rootstech. It is an experience that you can only understand if you have been there. While I have been researching my family line for a long time, I find that I learn something new each time I go. It has made me a life time learner.

    I have been to many genealogy conventions over the years, but nothing compares with Rootstech. It is an experience that you can only understand if you have been there. I enjoy the DNA classes the most.

    The article on the black sheep in the family was fun to read and chock full of information. There are so many places to find our not so “nice” ancestors. When I was searching for my Black Sheep I ran into a stumbling block. I knew the records were there, newspapers confirmed his conviction, but he was no where in the court records. Then the breakthrough occurred, normally his trial would have taken place in Superior Court but for some reason the trial took place in County Court…go figure. It only goes to show not to give up.

    I’ve been fortunate enough to attend the last 4 Rootstechs. People frequently ask me for help with their family history issues – anything from a simple ‘how do I … on FamilySearch,’ to “how can I find out how this (famous person) is related to my family” They are amazed that I understand a lot about family history. I always point out all of the learning opportunities that are available – webinars, The Family History Guide, Classes, Conventions – especially the biggest and best of them all, Rootstech! The knowledge is available for those who put out the effort to gain it. (But the real reason is that Rootstech is so much fun!)

    I just read the post about how animals are part of our families. It’s a great idea to incorporate their stories into our family history. I know some of the animals that have lived with me know more of my secrets then any human ever had. I have pictures of all of them; now I will be sure to write their stories as well.

    I found the article on what to do during the dog days of summer. I know I am a little late but being from NE it still feels like summer. There were so many great ideas and links that if I followed them all I would be busy till next summer. GeneaWebinars Calendar is a great site to listen to FREE Webinars…Got to love those free sites. I also poked around Genealogy Gems, great site but the music was a bit much.

    I would love to win a pass to Rootstech. I want to learn from the speakers, vendors and attendees. There are so many resources that I am sure are available and I want to learn more about them and how I can use them to find my ancestors.

    Just filled out the Halloween survey. Not sure how correct it was but it was fun. It said I was a misanthrope, wow that was a surprise. I might be a bit of a cynic, but a hater of mankind; nope!
    It also said I liked to be frightened, nothing could be farther from the truth. Happy Halloween!

    My first opportunity to visit was last year but I have been watching the broadcasted portions for years online. It was so great that I am hooked to the opportunity to attend conferences every time I get the opportunity.

    The information on the different kind of censuses was the first time I had heard of mortuary schedules. They cover years that are sometimes blank pages so I will incorporate these schedules in my research.

    Would love to attend RootsTech 2019. I find it helps me to connect with the relatives of my past to understand their stories trials, failures and successes. This gives me a better vision of who I am and what has shaped my life to become the person I am.

    Just read through the ” Polish Research for Family History Research” A great place to start my research. Since I had no idea where to start this will really be of help.

    I attended RootsTech for the first time this year and it was wonderful. I’ve learned so much this year that I’m looking forward to sitting in on a few more advanced courses this time around!

    I first attended RootsTech with a friend last year. We are very excited about the prospect of attending again this year. There is nothing quite like a conference to reinvigorate yourself! It’s also amazing to spend four days with people who actually WANT to hear stories about random dead people. (No one even rolls their eyes or pretends they just got a phone call!) I’m looking forward to hearing Maureen Taylor talk about “Outside the Frame: Telling the Full Story of Your Photographs” and Kenyatta Berry’s personal story of “Jumping off a cliff: How to pursue your dreams”

    Just read the post on getting ready to research in the FHL. I loved the tip about having an owners folder on each thumb drive. I have several family lines I can search each in a different location so the question is where do I start before I even start.
    Happy Halloween !!!!!
