RootsTech in 2021 is going to be a bit different. It even has a different name – RootsTech Connect. In case you have been living in total isolation (hang on, hasn’t everyone?) and haven’t heard the news, RootsTech Connect will be 100% online and 100% free. All you need to do is register at https://www.rootstech.org/. This new online conference will mean no crowds, no jetlag and no expensive hotels.
Since this conference will not involve a trip to Salt Lake City in person, I won’t tease you with pictures of the Family History Library.
As the Expo Hall will be online, pictures of the Expo Hall in previous years won’t be relevant. But rest assured, there will be Exhibitors.
Neither is it relevant to show you pictures of the people I could catch up with at the conference.
So what can I show you to whet your appetite and tempt you to attend RootsTech Connect in 2021?
Well, there will still be speakers. Even more of them than we’ve had in the past. We have had some really great speakers and really great talks in the past, and this year will be no different. The speakers haven’t been officially announced yet, but I have heard some whispers and there are some fantastic speakers, many of which have never spoken at RootsTech before.

Read my reports of their sessions here.
And who could forget Donny Osmond, who appeared at RootsTech in Salt Lake City in 2015 and in London in 2019.
But my absolute favourite keynote was LeVar Burton. I wrote about how his story brought us all to tears here.
