I was not invited to Prom in 1975. Not that I am bitter. But have you ever felt left out? Sometimes I feel that way when RootsTech rolls around. It’s like Prom for 20,000 genealogists, minus the disco ball and awkward photos (it was the 70s, ya know!)
It seems like everyone is going, and maybe you wish you could be there but it’s not happening for one reason or another. I hear your *sigh* and want you to know I’m here for you. There’s no need to feel like everyone else but you is going to the party. I’m not bitter. In fact, I’m kinda excited, because RootsTech has made it possible for all of us to join in the fun! Here is a link to their online streaming schedule so once a day you can put on your tuxedo or ball gown, settle in to a comfortable armchair, and soak up the RootsTech vibes.
As it turns out, this year I actually am going to RootsTech, but I’ll be busy manning two different booths in Expo Hall, so I’m going to take advantage of the recorded sessions that will be available after the event. If you happen to be coming this year, stop by the Utah Genealogical Association booth or the ICAPGen booth and say hi. I’ll be the one in the fancy ball gown.
