- Recording your story.
- Scanning photos and books.
- Creating a visual family tree and more.
In addition, there will be inspirational messages from Elder Neil L. Andersen, Elder Allan F. Packer, Elder Bradley D. Foster, and popular speakers who will:
- Help inspire you to record, preserve, and share your family stories.
- Teach you to find and prepare your family names for temple work.
- Teach you the powerful features of the Family Tree on FamilySearch.
- Help those with family history callings with insightful training.
- Help you get started on your family history.
The event is designed as a day of devotionals, classes, and interactive experiences designed especially for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Whether you’re just getting started with photos and stories or are already into your family tree, there is something for everyone.
For LDS youth (ages 12 to 18) will also have the opportunity of discovering the fun of family history! Popular LDS speaker John Bytheway kicks off the day, followed by hours of fun classes, time to explore the Expo Hall, youth-specific activities (such as the Genealogy Merit Badge and Personal Progress), and a special event from the cast of Studio C from BYUtv!
Both events require a pre-registration by visiting the RootsTech.org website.
I can imagine that many of the youth (and a lot of adults) would come to the event just to get a chance to see the Studio C cast in person. You can see what you will be missing by visiting the BYUtv YouTube.com channel. Just do a search for Studio C on YouTube.com for a long list of the comedy sketches from this BYU phenomena.
