Scenes from the RootsTech Conference

By February 10, 2011

Follow me on:

Collaboration Station at RootsTech Conference. Photo by Kimberly PowellThe inaugural RootsTech Family History and Technology Conference going on now in Salt Lake City, Utah, is an experiment of sorts. The hope is that bringing together technology creators and genealogists who love technology will create a synergy of sorts - with lots of new ideas resulting from the mix. There are a lot of new presentations and new ideas being tried here - nothing like you would usually see at a genealogy conference. They may not all succeed, but you don't achieve innovation without risk. For more on the RootsTech Conference, especially the cool offerings in the Expo Hall, check out these Photos from RootsTech 2011.

Most of these photos don’t show the throngs of attendees. There are over 3,000 people in attendance!

Thanks for pointing that out Alan. I took the pictures during a session time on purpose just to try to show the hall better without all the people. Attendance topped the 3000 mark yesterday and is still climbing!!!
