How quickly the year is passing us by, seems like only a short while since I set off to fly from the UK to Salt Lake City in Utah to attend RootsTech 2017 in the company of @TheKirstyGray. A trip to RootsTech from the UK is not cheap, but the opportunities it presents for attending workshops, an extensive exhibition area and the opportunity to meet members of the genealogy community from around the world is unmatched. You can find out more about Rootstech2018 here: https://www.rootstech.org/blog/8-reasons-to-attend-rootstech-2018?cid=tp-rt-6579 and this link gives even more information. https://www.rootstech.org/why-attend?cid=tp-rt-6579
In 2018, both Kirsty and I will again be travelling to RootsTech and we have both been invited to be RootsTech Ambassadors. This means we will be tweeting and blogging from the event, which runs from February 28th to March 3rd 2018.
