We are pleased to let you know that we are offering our most affordable pass ever at RootsTech Connect. Registration will be free of charge this year. It is our gift to you in these difficult times.
Registration is very simple. Just complete the short form on the main page of RootsTech.org, or look for the pink speech bubble in the bottom right side of the screen and our cute robot will help you. Click on him, and when he asks, let him know you want to register. He will ask for your name and email address. If you run into any difficulties, we are happy to help you at email@example.com.
We recommend registering with separate email addresses if possible so that we can get an accurate count of people who plan on watching the event. However, if you have only one joint email address to register with, that is acceptable.
We’re busy working on the full conference schedule for RootsTech Connect. When it’s available, you’ll be able to view it on our website and start planning which classes you want to see. When our website is live, you’ll have the ability to add certain classes to your individual “playlist.”
Each class that you view during RootsTech Connect will have a syllabus attached that you’ll be able to view and download at your convenience.
