It’s almost time for the RootsTech again. So, what is RootsTech? It’s a conference for genealogists who meet to find cutting edges solutions and discover the latest technologies to enhance their research experience. On the techies side developers will gain information to produce innovative applications.
RootsTech has something for everyone even if you’re a newbie in the field of technology and, of course you get to learn about new technologies available to help your research experience.
What follows is a notice from Ancesty.com and, as of now I’m planning to attend:
“Family historians of all skill levels will learn technology-based solutions to accelerate their research. Take a look at what you’ll experience at this year’s conference:
- Discover how new and emerging technologies can simplify your research
