RootsTech 2014: Day 1

Yesterday, the team set up our booth in the large exhibit hall at RootsTech 2014, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

From an empty space on a concrete floor grew green grass, white cabinets, great graphics and a large circular MyHeritage logo hanging from the ceiling. Computers and cords were retrieved from sturdy travel containers and within a few hours, the screens and keyboards were set up and connected.

RootsTech 2013: We’ve arrived!

One of the best things about genealogy conferences is that we get to catch up with our friends.

This year's RootsTech is expected to attract some 5,000 attendees, some 25% more than last year's event. In addition to conference-goers, speakers and exhibitors, many genealogy bloggers are already here. While many are US-based, this year includes bloggers from Australia, UK, France, Spain and elsewhere.

By 7pm Tuesday, I was at the conference hotel, affectionately known as Geneabloggers Central. I knew that many bloggers had arrived early, and had a nice dinner with Randy Seaver, Heather Wilkinson Rojo, saw Dick Eastman, Lisa Louise Cooke, Thomas MacEntee, Lisa Alzo and others.

This morning (Wednesday) was set-up day for the MyHeritage booth.

Smart Match Improvements: Daniel Horowitz Interviewed at Rootstech

Last weekend at the Rootstech Conference, our very own Daniel Horowitz was interviewed by veteran genealogist and blogger Dear Myrtle. The conference was dedicated to the interaction between genealogy and technology, and as a result Daniel spent some time talking about some of our own website developments, and in particular our improved Smart Match facility.

Thanks to Dear Myrtle for conducting this interview. We hope you enjoy the results!
