RootsTech has quickly become the biggest genealogy conference in the United States. This year, more than 4,300 people attended.
For MyHeritage it was a very successful, as people happily welcomed us, the booth was constantly crowded, and we had a lot of fun. Also, our founder and CEO and Gilad Japhet's presentation on the soon-to-be-released SuperSearch was one of the most attended and anticipated. See our slideshow below:
We thank Banai Feldstein for sharing her photos with us.
Genealogy conferences are about content, of course, but more so about the people! We love to see our old friends and meet new ones.
People came from afar, and the MyHeritage team always enjoys meeting face-to-face with people with whom our only contact during the year is email or Skype. It is also an opportunity to hear from happy MyHeritage users.
Whether an individual attended RootsTech 2012 for specialized research and learning opportunities or for an overall great experience of high-tech genealogy immersion, the conference was a great opportunity and very successful.
MyHeritage congratulates the RootsTech and FamilySearch.org staff, who organized this year’s event. We are already looking forward to next year’s event, which should be bigger and better.

Topics included the WorldVitalRecords acquisition, the new MyHeritage genealogy search engine to be released, and a premiere of family calendars, an exciting new product soon to be available on MyHeritage.
