RootsTech Connect 2021 Virtual Conference should be starting in under 4 hours from now. It’s free to sign up for. I signed up recently and am eagerly awaiting for it to start. It has many topics that will be covered. You can learn more at https://www.familysearch.org/rootstech/rtc2021. Here are the FAQs: https://www.familysearch.org/rootstech/rtc2021/faq. Looks like the videos will be up until sometime before RootsTech 2022 is scheduled. The videos will include handouts that are available. You can download those items from each video.
This is my first time attending as the normal cost is outside my price range. Not to mention having to arrange transportation there and lodging. Think it will be a great thing to watch some of the videos. I signed up for a fair number of the videos. I will try to view the ones that interest me the most early on. As I have almost a year to view them, I may watch more of them as time allows.
I have only done one virtual conference last year. It was a Zoom conference. I have watched numerous Facebook Live videos over the last year. Some were better than others based on the Internet connection being used by those hosting the videos. Better Internet connections tended to produce better videos. In some cases, the Internet connection was so bad I couldn’t watch the videos. Or, they cut in and out so much, it was hard to follow them.
I believe RootsTech Connect 2021 will use very good Internet connections during the conference, and they will host the videos on their website for later viewing.
