FamilySearch’s RootsTech conference is going on now through Saturday in Salt Lake City, and FamilySearch is taking the opportunity to make some announcements:
- More than 6,700 people were pre-registered for RootsTech, which is huge for a US genealogy conference. The number is helped by the conference’s location in Salt Lake City, home to the Family History Library and to many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, for whom researching genealogy is a religious calling.
- About 2,000 teenagers signed up for a youth program on Saturday.
- FamilySearch will soon be available in nine languages for access by more people around the world. This is consistent with the organization’s increasing focus on historical records from places besides the United States.
- FamilySearch unveiled a new logo at a meeting for genealogy bloggers. You can see it on Genealogy Gems blogger Lisa Louise Cooke’s Facebook page.
- 3.2 billion names are now online in the databases at FamilySearch.org.
