On Feb. 2, 3, and 4 Ken and Lureen Orchard and Larry and Becky Jamison will attend RootsTech 2012 at the Salt Palace in Salt Lake City. As the home page of Rootstech.org explains (as seen in the photo above), "RootsTech is a leading edge conference designed to bring technologists together with genealogists, so they can learn from each other and find solutions to the challenges they face in family history research today. At RootsTech, genealogists and family historians will discover emerging technologies to improve their family history research experience. Technology developers will learn the skills to deliver innovative applications and systems. They will also have the opportunity to receive instant feedback from peers and users on their ideas and creations. Attendees will learn from hands-on workshops and interactive presentations at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced level."
Many of the classes are going to be presented as "Live Streaming", which means you can go to Rootstech.org and watch the actual class as it's being presented. I watched several presentations last year during the conference, from my home computer, and felt like I was in the live audience.
Today a list of all the "live streaming" classes was posted on the blog of "The Armchair Genealogist". Click here to read the schedule of classes and the times they will be available for viewing. I encourage you to watch as many as you can. They're free, very instructional and interesting and you can watch from the comfort of your home.
