FamilySearch has announced the RootsTech 2021 conference will be a free, global, virtual event in 2021.
Previously planned for Feb. 3-6 in Salt Lake City, Utah, “RootsTech Connect 2021” is now set for Feb. 25–27. It is designed to provide attendees from around the world “inspiring keynote speakers, dozens of classes in multiple languages, and a virtual marketplace.”
Reserve a spot at RootsTech.org.
“The pandemic is giving us the opportunity to bring RootsTech to a broader audience worldwide,” said Steve Rockwood, FamilySearch International CEO. “A virtual event also allows us to expand our planning to truly make this a global celebration of family and connection.”
Throughout the three-day online event, attendees will have the ability to interact with presenters, exhibitors and other attendees through live chat and Q&A sessions.
“Classes will be taught in many languages, and presenters will teach from a number of international locations,” Rockwood said. “We will celebrate cultures and traditions from around the world, with activities that the audience can participate in from home – such as homeland cooking demonstrations, storytelling and music performances. This is one virtual event you won’t want to miss.”
