Official RootsTech 2014 Blogger

Official RootsTech 2014 Blogger

I’ve been selected as an Official Blogger for RootsTech 2014, the Family History and Technology Conference to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah 6-8 February 2014. I’m honored to be selected and my goal is to bring the members and readers of GeneaBloggers information about the upcoming event.

Attending RootsTech as the Genealogy Ninja

While I have attended the past two RootsTech events, this coming year I will be attending in “ninja mode” as I call it, since I will be in Australia on the 4th Unlock the Past Cruise while RootsTech is going on back in Salt Lake City. This means I’ll be reporting on developments involving RootsTech prior to the event and then sharing the news I received during the event as well.

$10 Off Early Bird Registration at RootsTech 2014

My first bit of news to share: if you haven’t already registered, you can save an additional $10 off the early bird price for a full access conference pass at RootsTech by using Promo Code: RT14LTO. This promotion is valid until November 30, 2013.
