RootsTech Free Online Videos

RootsTech 2013I know I am being greedy, but I am so jealous at the moment!!  Here I am just off the fabulous Unlock The Past 2013 Genealogy Cruise, I’ve hardly unpacked my suitcase and I want to be off again this time to RootsTech 2013. RootsTech is the yearly event where family history and technology collides and those two are a match made in heaven!

For those of us unable to attend there is a second option – watch some of the 2012 presentation that are available on I suspect that these 2012 videos may be replaced by those from this years show so I’m going to have a mini RootsTech experience this evening to make sure I don’t miss out.
