“I am passionate about teaching and I have lectured all over the world in venues of all shapes and audiences of all sizes. But the goal is the same every time: get my message out. RootsTech provides an ideal venue to do just that. Not only do they have the ability to bring me ears to hear my message, but their superior organization and experience means that I always have all the information I need to be ready for the conference so I can focus on preparing my message. Plus, during the event their on-site support is exceptional, allowing me to focus on just delivering my message. RootsTech is an essential addition to my schedule.”Diahan Southard, Your DNA Guide
