RootsTech 2023 – Last In-Person Day, But Lots More Online!

Today is the last day for the live RootsTech 2023 sessions! This conference always moves along so quickly and, before I know it, it’s time to wait for another year.

However, there is lots going on today so here are some suggestions:

Make sure to visit the Expo Hall and check out all the vendors. There are many different products and services about which to learn – everything from genealogy software to DNA kits and support to a myriad of ways to tell the story of your ancestors and everything in between.

Several genealogical societies have booths, including a few from outside the U.S.

The important thing to note about the Expo Hall is that when the live conference closes this afternoon, most of the vendors’ booths will also close.

As just important as checking out the Expo Hall is reviewing the LIVE sessions happening today.

Log in to RootsTech and scroll down the screen to the band of links to live sessions, grouped by time the session is being presented.

Use the arrows to navigate through each group of sessions.

Here is a sampling of some of today’s live sessions (in MST):

Luckily for everyone, the close of the in-person event isn’t really the end of the conference. RootsTech 2023 will really just be beginning because you can build your playlist today, if you haven’t already begun, and then watch all the sessions you want to your heart’s content.
