The Legacy Family Tree team is off to Salt Lake City for RootsTech 2019! Always the largest family history event, RootsTech 2019 will feature more than 300 classes, thousands of genealogists, and a gigantic exhibit hall.
The Legacy Booth and more
You'll find Dave and Ken - the founders and developers of our Legacy software in booth #1233. I'll (Geoff) be there as well, along with Leonard, Pegi and others (thanks to Michele, Marian, Jairmie, John and Ron for keeping our Facebook, Support, webinars and everything else running at home!). So bring your questions, good conversation, and well, your money. But only bring half as much as you normally would since both Legacy and webinar memberships will be available for our special conference pricing of half off!
You'll also find me over at the MyHeritage booth giving demos and short classes.
- Thursday, 10:30am: Learn Genealogy at Home for Free with FamilyTreeWebinars.com
- Friday, 9:30am: Success with the MyHeritage Chromosome Browser
I've also been asked to introduce one of RootsTech's keynote speakers, Saroo Brierley, who was the inspiration behind the true-life story in the movie Lion (I loved the movie!). This will be on the Main Stage on Friday, March 1 at 11am.
I'm really looking forward to hearing from MyHeritage CEO, Gilad Japhet, as he has promised to make some industry-changing announcements. Here and here are sneak peeks of the topics, and who knows, there'll likely been even more.
Can't make it?
If you can't make it to SLC this year, 22 of the classes will be live-streamed. Details are here. PLUS, we'll still see you online for this week's live webinars (thanks for hosting, Marian!):
