Registration is now open for RootsTech 2019, which will take place in Salt Lake City from 27 February to 2 March.

RootsTech is always a wonderful experience, and here are nine reasons to attend and another five reasons to attend. You may have heard a bit of negative feedback about this year's conference, but the good news is that the organizers also heard that feedback and are making changes accordingly. The first episode of the Road to RootsTech details some of these changes in response to the feedback. Do keep an eye on this series, as new videos will be added every few weeks.

So don't let anything you heard about this year stop you from enjoying the experience in 2019! Register before 25 January to get the special price of $209.
