A Tour of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah

Road to RootsTech 2020 Episode 9: Tour the Family History Library

I am making my last preparations for RootsTech 2020. I have several presentations coming on the Main Exhibit Floor for MyHeritage, The Family History Guide, and The Brigham Young University Family History Library. It looks like our visit to RootsTech 2020 will be busy as usual. You can also catch up with me at the Media Hub with the other RootsTech Ambassadors. In between, I will probably be wandering around and meeting new people and renewing old acquaintanceships and friendships. If you see me walking around, be sure and stop me to talk. 

The world-famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah is just a hop, skip, and jump (1 long city block) away from the Salt Palace where RootsTech is being held. You can see a map of the downtown area here

The weather is looking normal for the end of February with possible rain and some cold night temperatures. Despite forecasts, you can always expect snow. 

The Monday before RootsTech 2020, February 24, 2020, is the BYU Family History Technology Workshop at the Hinkley Alumni Center on the BYU campus in Provo, Utah. This year the Workshop is free with registration. The Workshop is from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm. I will be presenting along with an amazing line up of genealogy tech presenters. This will be the 19th year of the Workshop. Here is a short summary of the Workshop from the website.
The 2020 Family History Technology Workshop will bring together developers, researchers, technology professionals, and users to discuss current and emerging family history technologies. The workshop will feature developer sessions, lightning talks, technical presentations and demos to showcase technologies that will impact the future of Family History and Genealogical Research.
