#RootsTech 2014 -- Watch It Live

#RootsTech 2014 will be broadcast live during the Conference scheduled from February 6th to the 8th from the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City, Utah. Streaming videos begin at 8:30 am Mountain Daylight Time. Each day of the Conference with have a full schedule of broadcast sessions. I am still finding people, even in Utah Valley who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who have not even heard of RootsTech. At the same time I hear comments about the large number of announcements and news reports that have been broadcast. I suppose it is based entirely on the members' interest level. Those who don't care or want to know don't hear the announcements.

There are a total of 120 sessions available for those who attend the Conference in person. You can also download the syllabuses for the entire conference from the website.

Quoting from the website:
In conjunction with the third day of RootsTech, on Saturday, February 8, 2014, Family Discover Day is 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.

Hear 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.
