If you're not going to RootsTech 2014, I hope that you will take the opportunity to watch these world-class presentations either live or after the event.

I'll be at RootsTech and will try to attend other presentations than these, and watch them later when I get home.

Thank you! I can't make the road trip this year to Salt Lake, so will be watching online.

Looks like not all of them are live. The ones streamed at 5 p.m. are scheduled at RootsTech for earlier in the day.
