Free: Watch 15 RootsTech Conference Sessions Live From Home
Posted by Diane

RootsTech, FamilySearch's genealogy conference happening Thursday through Saturday of next week in Salt Lake City, has announced the 15 sessions you can watch online for free.

I won't reprint the entire live-stream session schedule here because it's already on the FamilySearch website, but below are some that I especially want to watch from my desk, and why. (I'll be here at the office while my intrepid colleagues Allison Dolan and Tyler Moss represent Family Tree University in booth #927.)
  • Thursday, 10:30 -11:30 a.m. MT, Top 10 Things I Learned About My Family from My Couch by Tammy Hepps, because who doesn't want to be able to do genealogy from the sofa?
  • Friday, Feb. 7, 1-2 p.m. MT, Tweets, Links, Pins, and Posts: Break Down Genealogical Brick Walls with Social Media by Lisa A. Alzo. Social media is a resource I don't use much for genealogy, but it's a great way to crowdsource questions.
  • Saturday, Feb. 8, 10:30-11:30 a.m. MT, Become an iPad Power User by Lisa Louise Cooke. Although I don't have an iPad (we're an Android family), I'd love to increase my app knowledge.
  • Saturday, Feb. 8, 1-2 p.m. MT, Information Overload: Managing Online Searches and Their Results by Josh Taylor, because sometimes the problem isn't how to search, it's how to work through all those results, decide which ones merit further evaluation, and know when to stop looking at them.
  • Saturday, 5-6 p.m. MT, Five Ways to Do Genealogy in Your Sleep by Deborah Gamble. Funny how my list starts with the couch and ends with sleep.
I'm a little disappointed the keynotes aren't on the list. I wanted to see Ree Drummond, aka the Pioneer Woman, so you all will have to tell me about her talk.

You can watch the sessions at RootsTech.org; the video player will be right on the home page. All the session times are Mountain time, and because you're watching live, you need to translate them into your own time zone.

I'll be keeping a close eye on the RootsTech conference and reporting the news from here, so stay tuned!
