RootsTech 2023

Is here, and nearly done! Time sure does seem to fly. Been here all week so I could get some time at the Family Search Library. It is difficult to drag oneself away from either RootsTech sessions or the Library. But, I’ve yet to succeed in being in two places at once!

It is so good to be back at an in person event and spend time with people who really understand what Genealogy and Family Research is all about!

Visiting Salt Lake City for such and event and including the FHL is a truly valuable experience. Though I hate to admit it, I can remember thinking ‘what could I possibly find out about my family all the way out there?’ Now I know, and this is my third go round!

We arrived late Sunday night and for those who haven’t been and plan to fly in, beware, it was literally a mile long walk at the airport from where we got off the plane to where baggage was. I think they were trying to quickly get us into shape. The first part of the week was focused on the library sources.

RootsTech 2023 began for me on Wednesday evening when at the first “GSI Murder Mystery Dinner”. GSI stands for ‘Genealogy Solves It’. Nathan Dylan Goodwin and Diane Southard joined forces and created a great event. It was so much fun and a great learning experience. There is talk of creating a virtual event similar to this, so if you can’t make it to an onsite event, stay tuned!

The weather has been interesting. Temps are around the 30’s during the day. First few days the wind was rough! But has since calmed down. Hopefully those of you who couldn’t make it are tuning in online!
