3-day global family history event featured celebrity keynotes, fun activities, a bustling expo hall and hundreds of informative classes
For the first time in three years, thousands attended RootsTech in person in Utah, and many more participated online March 2-4.
The three-day global family history event in the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City featured a list of celebrity keynotes, fun activities, a bustling expo hall and hundreds of informative classes, which will continue to be available online for the rest of the year at RootsTech.org.
This year’s theme focused on “Uniting,” said Jen Allen, director of events for FamilySearch.
“This year we are uniting, specifically uniting families — past, present and future,” Allen said in a video interview. “It has been an incredible growth … and it feels perfect as we emerge out of that virtual-only experience and bring people together not just here, but all over the world.”
RootsTech organizers sought to enhance the online experience by localizing content for all regions of the world. They incorporated 15 emcees from various cultures and backgrounds who speak 11 languages to help customize content for people following RootsTech around the world.
