Family History Fanatics Meet & Greet Schedule at RootsTech 2018

I received this from Family History Fanatics today:



In 2016, Devon Noel Lee attended RootsTech and found that finding her favorite genealogists in the massive Salt Palace Conference center was so difficult. The genealogy rock stars were teaching, networking, and dashing in different directions. She particularly remembers ‘just missing’ one genealogy blogging icon every time she attempted to track him down. 

Having had this experience and not wanting others to have a repeat, Devon assembled a list of some of her favorite genealogy folks for RootsTech attendees to Meet and Greet. They’re guaranteed to be in one spot - the Family History Fanatics booth (#1952) located between the Demo Theater and the Discovery Zone. 

To kick off the Meet & Greet, each genealogy rock star will have a 10-minute interview for the Family History Fanatics YouTube channel. Once that's over, Expo Hall attendees take over the rock star’s time. On Thursday and Friday, you’ll have the chance to greet: 

Elizabeth O'Neal 
Thomas MacEntee 
Randy Seaver 
Amy Johnson Crow 

Michael L Strauss 
Family Locket - Nicole Dyer and Diane Elder 
Lisa Alzo 
Jill Ball 

Take photos. Ask questions. Be a fan girl / guy! It’s all part of the RootsTech experience! 

While you're at booth #1952, be sure to participate in TWO drawings. 

1. Family History Fanatics Drawing - We'll be giving away a TV (that must be taken home on Saturday!) among other educational prizes. The drawing will take place Saturday at 2 pm. Come to our booth to register. 

2. GBA.BUZZ Scavenger Hunt - Scan the QR Code at our booth and enter to win a prize from one of 16 vendors in the Expo Hall. To learn more about the GBA.BUZZ Scavenger Hunt, watch this video:
