I saw this on FamilySearch recently – RootsTech Connect: What It Is and How You Can Participate: http://RootsTech Connect: What It Is and How You Can Participate. Longer article, but here’s a short synopsis. Includes photos and a video.

Every year, families, genealogists, family history enthusiasts, and industry-leading companies come together for the largest genealogy conference in the world—RootsTech. It’s truly a genealogist’s dream, with multiple days packed with hundreds of classes, thousands of participants, exciting events, and opportunities to connect with family past and present. This map allows you to explore different areas of the United States to learn more about victims and their families. You may even be able to find information about your relatives who were impacted.
In 2020, RootsTech looked a little different. To make RootsTech a safe and accessible experience for as many people as possible, RootsTech went fully online and became RootsTech Connect.
Though RootsTech Connect the event took place from February 25–27, 2021, the learning, connecting and discovering are not over, but just kicked off. The fully video on-demand content has made it possible to participate from anywhere in the world. The best part? It’s completely free—and available year-round.
