Genealogists are flocking to Salt Lake City this week for FamilySearch’s third annual RootsTech conference, March 21-23. What’s notable and new about the conference this year?

Glad you asked—there’s even something for the folks stuck at home:

  • The RootsTech expo hall, which is free to the public, is 40 percent bigger this year. It includes opportunities to get research help in a FamilySearch mini-lab, have a photo or album digitized, get a large family tree printout, and receive a free copy of Family Tree Magazine (when you stop by our booth, tell Tyler, our online community editor, that I said hi).
  • RootsTech attendees can register for just the Getting Started track of classes for $19 for one day or $39 for three days.
  • A Developer Day on Friday will consolidate the presentations geared toward creators of genealogy technology tools.
  • We know of two scavenger hunts occurring in conjunction with the conference—RootsMagic’s scavenger hunt includes an at-home component for those not at RootsTech, and the Heirloom Registry will hold a conference hall version of its online scavenger hunt from a few weeks ago.
