MORE INFORMATION / REGISTRATION: RootsTech.org


Have you heard of this conference? RootsTech 2015 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting events of the year. As the largest family history event in the world, it is the perfect place to be inspired to discover and share your family stories and connections—past, present, and future. Whether you’re an avid genealogist or you are just getting started, RootsTech has something for everyone.

Adding to the excitement of this year’s conference, RootsTech welcomes former first lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna Bush Hager. The former first lady will talk about life in the White House and the importance of family during those eight years, as well as reflect on the difficult days following September 11. Jenna Bush Hager, an NBC The Today Show special correspondent, will join her mother onstage for a fireside chat where they will share family stories as a new mother and grandmother.

OTHER STUFF AND PEOPLE AT ROOTSTECH:

  • Inspiring keynotes sessions with entertainer Donny Osmond, New York Times bestselling author A.J. Jacobs, innovator and technologist Tan Le, and, of course, the Bushes.
  • Over 200 classes for all experience levels, including such topics as using social media for family history and preserving and sharing your family photos. A “Getting Started” track is offered for beginners.
  • Entertaining events with special guest performers, including American Idol finalist David Archuleta, musician and YouTube sensation Alex Boyé, the award-winning One Voice Children’s Choir, and the cast of Studio C from BYUtv.
  • An expo hall of hundreds of family history and technology exhibitors available to help you with things such as scanning photos, recording stores, and building a family tree.

Just that music line-up alone has me sold. I’m so excited!


MY CLASS

I’ll be teaching a class called Project Life®: Scrapbooking Has Never Been Easier! It will take place on Friday, February 13th at 4:00pm. I’ll be sharing what most of you know I’m passionate about — simplifying the process of scrapbooking through the use of certain solution-based tools that make that possible. I will not be focused on techniques. I will not dive into anything that is advanced. This is very much an introductory class and one that I hope will benefit those who attend. Have friends or family in Utah that should know about this event and/or my class? Send them over.

Check out the Schedule of Events and you can search “Becky Higgins” right there to find my specific class listing.
