Schelly and I are in chilly Salt Lake City where the 2d RootsTech conference begins tomorrow. Over 3,000 attendees have already registered!
You don't need to be in Salt Lake City to attend some of the programs! Some sessions of RootsTech can be viewed live, for free.
Here's the announcement from RootsTech:
RootsTech Live Streaming Can't make it to Salt Lake City this week for RootsTech 2012? No worries! We'll be streaming 14 sessions live and free of charge. No registration is required to view these videos.
All you have to do is tune in here on the homepage during the event this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Our homepage will transform into RootsTech Live, giving you a live look into what's going on at the conference, right on our homepage. You just have to come here and press play.
