RootsCrew : The Angels of RootsTech !

 »

Member of our Team

Believe it or not, RootsTech 2019 is just around the corner, and we, like you, are busy preparing and getting ready for the best RootsTech yet! We are always thinking as a team about ways that we can make your experience better. That being said, we are excited to introduce a new aspect of our RootsTech team: Roots Crew.

Roots Crew has one job at RootsTech: to spread joy! There are many ways that Roots Crew will fulfill this important responsibility. Here are just a few:

Message Roots Crew through our mobile app

As if you needed another reason to download the app! During conference time, an icon will be added to the home screen titled Roots Crew, where you can directly message the Roots Crew team questions, comments, and concerns. We take attendee feedback very seriously!

Social media

Have you ever tweeted at a company or brand when you’ve loved them or had problems with them? We recognize that social media is an important part of your experience at RootsTech and we love seeing what you have to share. In fact, we have quite a few classes dedicated to the use of social media (link to social media class blog).

Roots Crew will be listening to what you have to say online and looking for opportunities to solve customer problems and spread joy.

Solving problems

Have you ever been walking around and your shoelace broke? Have you developed blisters after a long day on your feet? Have you ever gotten lost while looking for a class? Have you ever spilled on your shirt during lunch? Do you worry that a screw or lens will pop out of your glasses while in a class? Any of those situations can be solved by Roots Crew!

If your shoelace breaks, message us in the RootsTech App and we’ll bring you a new one. Got blisters? We can bring you anti-chafe cream and moleskin. If you get lost searching for that perfect class or exhibitor booth, send us a tweet and we’ll help you find your way. Did you spill on your shirt at lunch? Roots Crew will swing by with stain remover. Did your glasses break? We’d be happy to show up with a repair kit.

So, whether you reach out to us on social media or through the app, Roots Crew will be there to help in any way they can. You will see them wandering around in special T-shirts, prepared to help with whatever situation you find yourself in, and giving away some free swag.

Download our app today on the App Store or Google Play Store.

Don’t forget to follow us on social media! You can find us on Facebook and Twitter. Keep an eye out for upcoming episodes of our Road to RootsTech series, where we will discuss more about Roots Crew and other conference features. »

Une rencontre avec Lisa Louise Cooke !

Oui,je sais , j’ai une chance dingue ! Lors du dernier RootsTech, j’ai eu le plaisir de rencontrer Lisa Louise Cooke  

et de discuter un peu avec elle dans les couloirs de RootsTech !

Lisa Louise, c’est une approche digitale et éducative de la généalogie, un développement de leçons et de séminaires pour avancer dans ses projets de recherche. Aider les autres lui tient vraiment au coeur et ca se ressent !

  • Elle est super sympa ! ( Ca ne gâte rien !)
  • Son approche généalogique est vraiment très intéressante et inspirante
  • Les supports qu’elle propose sont vraiment agréable à utiliser et consulter
  • Une communication constante via sa newsletter et ses reseaux

Rien à redire, je suis fan fan fan!

Une généalogie ancrée dans le 21e siècle avec le sourire et du peps!

Franchement, ca donne de l’énergié pour une année entière 🙂

5 More Reasons to Attend RootsTech 2019 !

5 More Reasons to Attend RootsTech 2019

RootsTech 2019 is right around the corner, February 27 to March 2, 2019, and there are so many exciting reasons to attend! With more than 30,000 people expected to make the trek to Salt Lake City and the Salt Palace Convention Center, RootsTech has quickly become one of the largest and most recognizable genealogy conferences in the world.

“This is the best family history conference,” said Curt Witcher, senior manager at the Allen County Public Library. “And it’s not necessarily because it’s the biggest, even though it is the biggest—awesome number of vendors, awesome number of attendees that you can network with and interact with. But it’s a different model, to have a day start with keynoters that aren’t necessarily talking about research methodology but talking about life and the impact of story.”

In a recent blog post, we examined “9 Reasons to Attend RootsTech 2019,” but there are more! Here are five more reasons you won’t want to miss the upcoming conference:

Feel the Excitement of the Opening Event

We’re excited to announce that the world-famous a cappella group the Edge Effect will be performing at RootsTech 2019 during the opening event. The event will take place on the main stage on Wednesday, February 27, directly following a keynote address by Steve Rockwood, CEO of FamilySearch International. The Edge Effect, which travels the world performing covers and original pieces, is sure to excite and entertain RootsTech attendees. The group’s music covers a wide variety of styles. They’ll also be sharing their family heritage stories during their performance.

You can hear some of their music on their website or on their YouTube channel.

Be Entertained by Jason Hewlett as Host and Emcee


We’re thrilled to announce that Jason Hewlett will be returning to the RootsTech stage as host and emcee for the third time. Hewlett, the multitalented speaker, entertainer, comedian, and impressionist, will bring his family-friendly antics to the stage to entertain RootsTech attendees during the daily general sessions.

Take Advantage of the Family History Library


Located a block north of the Salt Palace Convention Center, the Family History Library offers a host of records, genealogical publications, documents, and research guides from more than 100 countries. Bring your unsolvable genealogy dilemmas, and spend some time with experienced genealogists who are willing to help you find that missing ancestor.

Solve Tough Problems at the Coaches’ Corner


For the third year at RootsTech, we’ll have certified genealogists on hand to help you find answers to your toughest questions! Located in the RootsTech Expo Hall, the Coaches’ Corner will be a place where you can spend some time researching and collaborating with professionals trained to help you break through brick walls. This type of one-on-one expert help is something you won’t want to miss.

Enjoy Free Lunch on Wednesday

On Wednesday, free box lunches on large food carts throughout the main concourse will be offered during the lunch hour while the Expo Hall and food areas are under construction. Please feel free to help yourself to a lunch and enjoy some networking time with friends and colleagues. Seating will be available in the main stage area. If you choose not to take a boxed lunch, you can enjoy a number of restaurants within walking distance of the Salt Palace. For a complete list of restaurants available in downtown Salt Lake City, click here.

Whatever your reasons for attending, make sure to register for RootsTech 2019. It will be an experience you won’t want to miss!
