Celebration Sunday-Genealogy Happy Dance! RootsTech 2023 Virtual and in Person!!


You know the dance. You know you've done it. The one every researcher does after finding something new. The one where you want to jump up and down and shout to everyone around that you found the document, contacted a cousin who has the family Bible, made a DNA connection, or found a whole new branch to your tree. The one that is met with glazed stares and eye rolls.

                                                          Celebration Sunday is a place to share your discoveries. 
This is a weekly series to enable everyone to tell about their Genealogy Happy Dance moment.

My Happy Dance Moment for this week: 

Did you hear the news? RootsTech is back in 2023 with both a virtual and in-person event!   I am happy for those who aren't able to travel and attend in person to have a virtual component, but even more thrilled for those of us who have missed gathering with genealogists from all over the world for our once-a-year family reunion!

Why am I so happy about an in-person event? Here are just a few:

1-Keynote Speakers: The party starts each day with an uplifting speaker who shares their stories and encourages the audience to do the same.  We laugh, we cry, and we are ready to go and learn how to find our family!

2-Classes: There's nothing like an in-person class where you can talk to fellow classmates and ask the speaker questions and have discussions. 

3-Friends-A genealogy family reunion where old friends reunite and new ones begin!

4-Research-The Salt Palace where RootsTech is held is just a couple of blocks away from the Family History Library. Arrange a time before or after RT to research. Or? Run over after classes end for the day to look for the records talked about in class.

5-Expo Hall-Walking through the expo hall in person and experiencing the products and services offered by vendors is amazing! Collecting ribbons, vendor giveaways, and product demonstrations help to fuel the excitement of attending.

6-Fun! RootsTech in person is just plain fun! 

No word about additional plans. I will keep you posted as news is released.

But for now, start planning your trip! Will I see you in Salt Lake City in March of 2023?

I sure hope so!! Genealogy Happy Dance for sure!!
