RootsTech 2022 – Closing Day for Live Sessions + Your Next Steps

Live sessions at RootsTech 2022 end at 5:00 p.m. today (MST). That means you still have an opportunity to attend live classes and visit the Expo Hall to finish up last minute shopping.

While the conference itself comes to a close, the fun will continue on. This year, there are 900 class sessions that have been recorded for your viewing pleasure.

If you haven’t yet registered for RootsTech, but would like to attend class sessions, it isn’t too late. Classes have been recorded and will be accessible online for at least one year.

If you’ve never attended RootsTech before, either in-person or virtually, and wonder what the class sessions are like, here is a sampling:

Although I’ve listed 20 titles covering a variety of topics, this list barely scratches the surface of all the terrific talks that you can add to your playlist with just one click.

To create your playlist, simply click on the MENU icon in the top right corner:

Choose My Playlist.

Next, browse class sessions.


If you wish to add the session to your playlist, just click the + button in the top right corner.

After you have finished adding sessions, you can view your playlist, which will look like this:

When you have viewed the talk and want to remove the session from your list, just click on the pink check mark.

You can return to your playlist as many times as you like to add, view or remove classes.

It’s that simple!
