We Are Heading to RootsTech 2018…


We’re excited to be returning Platinum sponsors at the world’s largest annual genealogy conference, RootsTech 2018, taking place February 28 – March 3, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. The conference features classes and keynote sessions for seasoned genealogists as well as for those just beginning to research their family history.

We have many different types of lectures and demos about MyHeritage planned over the conference. If you will be visiting then come by the MyHeritage booth #505. We’ll be offering live demonstrations at the MyHeritage booth throughout RootsTech.
