Randy's Day 2 (Friday, 3 March) #NotAtRootsTech2023

 I am not attending the in-person RootsTech 2023 conference in Salt Lake City this weekend (2-4 March), but I am attending virtually on the RootsTech 2023 website -

To prepare for the virtual event, I added a number of sessions to My Playlist for all three days, and there are other classes that were pre-recorded for RootsTech 2023.  The RootsTech 2023 On-Demand sessions are listed here.  

1)  Today, I watched a number of sessions, either the whole session or major parts of sessions:

*  CeCe Moore, Mitch Morrissey, McKell Keeney - Investigative Genetic Genealogy: A Conversation with Industry Leaders;

*  Janet Hovorka, Diahan Southard, Crista Cowan - DO GENEALOGY Step-By-Step:

*  FamilySearch -- Searching FamilySearch Record Images That Haven't Been Transcribed;

*  Patti Gillespie - FamilySearch: Finding What You Need and What You Didn’t Know You Wanted;

*  David Rencher, Lynn Turner - The FamilySearch Library: Exploring and Understanding the Resources Available to Researchers;

2)  I visited" the virtual Expo Hall today, and read the product descriptions of many of the exhibitors.  Some of the products I looked at included:

*  Generations Studio -- go back in time and discover your visual roots:

*  GENXT -- Cross-database DNA matching:

*  The 200 Year Challenge -- 4/5/6 generation pedigree charts naming all of your Direct Ancestors from the last 200 years:

*  3DGenV -- a web-based application to generate 3D family trees from GEDCOM files:

*  Artifcts -- where ‘stuff' and stories meet:

*  Bright Branches -- Bring your family tree to life with the TV app for Apple TV:

*  Cite-builder -- a citation generator for genealogists:

*  Genealogy Bargain$ -- FREE downloadable genealogy cheat sheets:

I will "visit" more exhibitors on Saturday.

3)  In other news,  my Relatives at RootsTech count is up to 68,325, including a first cousin once removed, a 3rd cousin once removed, and some 4th and 5th cousins. 

4)  I posted three blog posts today about RootsTech 2023:


Disclosure:  I am a RootsTech 2023 "Influencer" but will receive no remuneration for my support or posting of RootsTech information.  I will be an online participant this year because of my health problems.
