RootsTech 3 Days of Great Education

I just spent 3 days at a conference of 4,000+ genealogy enthusiasts and developers.  I was there as a student to see, learn and try out some of the new technology that is coming in this field.  This is also a wonderful place to get help on data programs that are giving you fits and you want face to face help.  I hit up the folks at booth about sourcing and media attachment and got a really knowledgeable woman who spent 45 min with my friend and I helping us get comfortable with just those two functions.  I also got personal help from the head developer of a program I use called Family Insite.  I had up graded to Lion on Jan 1 and knew that there might be trouble with that particular program and there was.  However, I knew that I would be going to this conference and these developer folks are always kind about giving service for their patrons.  He looked it over on my laptop, gave me some suggestions and twenty mins later I was up and running.

The opening keynote and several others are on line for free at the following address

RootsTech 2012

The opening address  "Inventing the Future, as a Community" is worth a look and is definitely entertaining.  Take a look and let me know what you think.  Comments are welcome and desired.
Have a great weekend.

  1. Kathleen,

    I am a descendant of Arthur Smith Ford. How can I contact you. I am now following your blog but I really don't understand how all this works. I am on my way to Floyd County Georgia at the beginning of July and stumbled across your blog in researching the area. I'm really wanting to see the pictures that you think are Joseph & Sarah.
