Thoughts on RootsTech 2018

RootsTech 2018 is over. But I still have more to share in the coming weeks.

Here's a brief overview summary of the conference with links to all of my blog posts at the end of this post. I'll add additional links here as I continue to blog about RootsTech.

This year's theme was Connect. Belong. My goodness, did I ever Connect!

  • Every conference and institute I attend leads to new friends. RootsTech is especially great for connecting and reconnecting with GeneaBloggers, old and new friends and fellow researchers. Some of these friends especially feed my soul. I look forward to seeing them every year.
  • Through the FamilyTree app, I connected with several "relatives" attending RootsTech. One of them is already a real-life friend. Now she's family.
  • RootsTech definitely leads to a feeling of belonging to something bigger in a way that other conferences doesn't. Maybe it's the inspiring keynotes. Or maybe it's somehow managing to run into friends purely by chance in the exhibit hall full of thousands of people. Whatever energy it is that runs through the conference, I'm thrilled to be a part!

Last but not least, I want to thank the RootsTech folks for putting on such an awesome conference. And MyHeritage for their after party. It was a great way to finally relax, connect and realize we all belong.
