We realized we had a draft buried about the “world’s largest family celebration” (for genealogists, family history hobbyist, and anyone interested in learning more about connecting more to your roots). It’s called RootsTech and it’s going on free right now.

Learning about our roots can help us as humans.

“We can find peace and understanding by learning from our ancestors. The resilience our forbears developed can inspire us to overcome challenges and avoid mistakes that others have made. Everyone has scoundrels and heroes in their family tree. Discovering information about ancestors can bring understanding and compassion for them and ourselves.” (Robin Olsen Worthlin)

I really don’t like COVID-19, but I do appreciate the way it’s inviting people to think about how to make amazing resources more freely available.

You can register for RootsTech here.

Here’s the RootsTech Mainstage schedule. And a schedule of sessions.

Many RootsTech sessions exist in a wide variety of languages. Instructions also exist within the content about how to translate content.
