4 Ways to Participate in RootsTech 2020 Digitally

RootsTech 2020 is almost here, and the countdown is winding down! RootsTech begins February 26 in Salt Lake City, Utah. We live in a digital world, and that means we can participate in events in more ways than one! If you cannot attend RootsTech 2020 in person, there are still many ways you can participate! If you are #NotAtRootsTech, then this is the article to check out to find your digital community online during and after the event.

Watch Livestreams of Keynote Sessions

All of the general sessions will be streamed live on rootstech.org on the main page, allowing you to watch all your favorite keynotes from the comfort of your home! (In or out of your pajamas. We’ll leave that up to you.) Check out the schedule below:

Watch Select Classes Online

We know that keynotes aren’t the only reason you love RootsTech. We have phenomenal classes available, and we want to share some of those with you. If you are #NotAtRootsTech, you will have access to select online classes ranging from DNA to records and more!

You can see the streaming schedule here.

Social Media

At RootsTech we know that innovation and technology go hand in hand with genealogy. So many of our genealogists are taking to social media and creating communities, and we are right there with you! You can find RootsTech on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

On all of our social channels, you will find exclusive content including:

  • Daily wrap-up videos of all RootsTech events.
  • Exclusive interviews.
  • Blog articles.
  • Exclusive giveaways for RootsTech attendees and those participating digitally.

You can also follow our two official hashtags (#RootsTech and #NotAtRootsTech) to join the conversation.

Virtual Pass

If you are craving even more RootsTech, you will want to check out the RootsTech Virtual Pass. This pass grants you access to 30 more sessions, in addition to what is already available on the website.

The Virtual Pass is a great option for genealogists who are unable to make it to Salt Lake City for the conference. You can review these classes anytime, learn at your own pace, save money, and avoid the cold Utah weather (unless you live somewhere colder, in which case we are all in awe). You can watch and rewatch your favorite sessions anytime with the Virtual Pass.

If you have already purchased a RootsTech pass and want access to 30 more recorded sessions, you can purchase the add-on option.

Purchase Your Virtual Pass today!

We are so excited to continue celebrating #RootsTech10Years with you, leading up to RootsTech 2020 on February 26–29, 2020, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Haven't registered yet? Register today! And don't forget to follow us on social media. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
