RootsTech, the biggest genealogy event in the world is starting in just over a week, with an expected attendance of abour 25,000 from all around the world.
Not only that, but they will also be livesteaming a number of the talks for free. So for those at home, you can still learn from many of the world’s best presenters.
The Livestream schedule was released, but to make life easier, I have converted the time from US Mountain time, to UK, AU (Sydney), and also NZ times. While I wouldn’t expect a lot of Aussie’s to get up at 2am for the opening session, I know some die-hard’s do.
And for those who are #NotAtRootsTech, don’t forget that you can see more of RootsTech by buying a “Virtual Pass”. For US$129 for you can see another 20 presentations, which are available for a few months to watch at a time that suits you. For more details on that, CLICK HERE.
