While genealogy conferences bring together genealogists for learning, sharing, collaborating, RootsTech - February 2-4, in Salt Lake City, Utah - brings together technology developers and genealogy consumers.
It is a great opportunity for technologists and genealogists (of all skill levels) to share ideas, learn from each other and find solutions to family history challenges.
Genealogists and family historians learn firsthand about exciting new technologies and tools to improve their research experience, while developers learn skills to deliver new applications and systems. The program offers many choices; see it here.
MyHeritage.com will be there in force at our display booth 514. Our RootsTech contingent includes:
MyHeritage founder and CEO Gilad Japhet. He will speak at 1.30pm, on Thursday, February 2 and demonstrate new technology to be unveiled for the first time. Family history fans worldwide will be delighted with this presentation. To learn more, you’ll have to be there!
US genealogy advisor Schelly Talalay Dardashti is an Official RootsTech Blogger.
They will be joined by our MyHeritage team in the US.
