Free Outside the Box Mini-Classes at RootsTech/FGS

By Diane Haddad

I’m getting excited for the joint RootsTech/Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference Feb. 12-14, and I hope lots of you are, too. (I’ve even planned the research I want to do at the Family History Library while I’m there.)

There’ll be a lot happening in our digs in the exhibit hall: Family Tree Magazine is joining with Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems, Photo Detective Maureen A. Taylor, and Chart Chick and Zap the Grandma Gap author Janet Hovorka to offer free Outside the Box mini-sessions, prizes, author meet-and-greets, and more.

Here’s a PDF with a schedule of Outside the Box sessions, which include Tech Tips for Newspaper Research, Preserve Your Family Photos on a Budget, Heirloom Roadshow and much more. The sessions take place throughout the day right in our exhibit hall booths.

The Outside the Box Schedule also has an entry form you can print, fill out and bring with you to RootsTech/FGS. Drop it in the prize box in Booth 1240 to receive an e-book with all the Outside the Box session handouts and be entered into our grand prize drawing.

The party will be in the RootsTech/FGS exhibit hall in booths 1143, 1238, 1240 and 1242, right across the aisle from the Demo Theater. See you there!
