Roots Tech in Salt Lake, Feb 27-Mar 2. Coming up soon. Handy website RootsTech.org.
Remember last year when I came home from RootsTech all jazzed up. It is the most exciting conference possible. Featuring general sessions with celebrities and music, a giant Expo Hall with every vendor you can imagine, and over 300 breakout sessions to choose from. You will love this if you can walk easily from one end to the other in the largest conference center you have ever seen and you don’t mind crowds. They are responding to complaints from last year but PATIENCE is the name of the game.
Usually January is a slow month for local genealogists. No Whatcom Genealogical Society meeting but Skagit has surprised us with a prominent speaker on Germans from Russia.
