See you at RootsTech 2014

Next week brings the first big genealogical conference of 2014, with RootsTech in Salt Lake City from February 6–8. I’ll be there with some of my colleagues from NEHGS, and we hope to meet a number of you there!

We’ve been attending the conference since it started in 2011 and look forward to the chance it gives us to meet with members and other genealogists who are using technology to make family history easier and more engaging. There’s also something for every skill level, whether you are just starting to use your smartphone for research or you want to get involved in the conversation about the next GEDCOM standard.

Our own Alice Kane will be giving a session on Thursday at 1 p.m. on A Mobile Genealogist: Using Evernote for Genealogy Research, and Rhonda McClure and I will be giving a lunchtime talk on Saturday about “AmericanAncestors.org — What’s New in Family History at NEHGS.” (If you have already registered for RootsTech, you can add the Saturday lunch by logging in here.)

If you want to swing by and say hello outside the sessions, we’ll be on the conference floor showing off AmericanAncestors.org and Vita Brevis. However, if you aren’t planning to come to Salt Lake City we’ll be writing updates here as well as on Facebook and Twitter.

Will we be seeing any of you next week? Have memories of RootsTech past or suggestions for what we should see this year? Let us know in the comments!
