The RootsTech Conference held annually in Salt Lake City, Utah is considered the Super Bowl of Genealogy. With 200+ Break Out Sessions, an Expo Hall packed with genealogy and technology companies, and over 20,000 of your fellow family history loving friends, RootsTech is a place to learn new skills and feel inspired to help your ancestors live on in the hearts and minds of their descendants everywhere.
Last year, Andy and I attended the conference because he was selected to present a class entitled "Audacity: The Power of Audio Editing." This year, we're team teaching a lab entitled "Start Writing Your Family History Today!" We love teaching and hope to see you in one of the Friday sessions.
But, RootsTech can be overwhelming! From what we learned last year, there are a few things beyond winter coats and tickets to the event that you'll need to bring with you. Some items are common sense, but I'd rather state the obvious rather than you slapping your forehead because you forgot one of these five essential things for surviving and thriving at this mega conference.
