RootsMagic Class Session

This year, we’re offering a class entitled, RootsMagic: Your Offline Home for Your Online Work. Here’s the description:

“It has never been easier to find and learn about your ancestors through internet records and websites. But collecting and organizing that information can be challenging. RootsMagic genealogy and family tree software can be your “home base” for accessing all these different resources. Join us and learn how to use the RootsMagic to spot holes and problems in your family tree. See how to easily search online sites such as Ancestry, FamilySearch, Findmypast, MyHeritage, and more. You’ll also learn how to easily share your findings with others.”

Time: Friday, March 2, 2018, 3 pm – 4 pm
Place: Ballroom G, Salt Palace Convention Center
Note: This class requires a RootsTech registration to attend.

Personal Historian in the Demo Theater

After you’ve walked the halls of RootsTech, nothing sounds better than a soft, comfortable couch. And the Expo Hall Demo Theater is full of them! Join us for a quick demonstration of the new Personal Historian 3 in the theater where you’ll get a chance to relax, learn something new about your favorite software, and maybe even take a little nap.
