If you've been thinking about getting into your family history, or you're a long-time digger, RootsTech Connect might be the place to be this weekend.

Sponsored by FamilySearch International, RootsTech is a four-day event held each year in Salt Lake City, Utah. In a typical year, there are over 300 breakout sessions plus days of keynote and celebrity speakers talking about  DNA research, technology, genealogy, and the census, plus more.

In 2021, for the first time, the conference will be entirely free and online. 

To register for this free event, scheduled for Feb 25-27, visit the RootsTech website.

Video archives of past events, including several free workshops, are also available on the website.
