The countdown to RootsTech is on! RootsTech, the largest worldwide family history event of the year, is holding its 20th annual conference this year from February 26–29. This year, we are aiming to give attendees the best on-the-ground experience yet and to offer a booth lecture schedule so rich and plentiful it could be a conference of its own.
Starting from the moment the Expo Hall opens, we’ve got a jam-packed schedule of lectures. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented and knowledgeable genealogists and DNA experts in the field, get to know some of the new and exciting features MyHeritage has introduced this year, and meet some of the people behind the innovative technology of MyHeritage. Even if you aren’t at RootsTech this year, stay tuned to our social channels as we will be bringing you live lectures and interviews throughout the conference!
You’ll have endless options as to how to fill your schedule at RootsTech, so be sure to take a look at both our session schedule and booth lecture schedule to block off the time for your favorite lectures and activities.
Here is a preview of the scheduled MyHeritage lectures from each of the days:
