It’s hard to believe that it’s already December.  So for me, the countdown to RootsTech has gotten real with just a little over two months until the conference.  I’m super excited to be an ambassador to RootsTech 2020.  I had been reading blogs, listening to podcasts, and watching YouTube videos for three years about RootsTech…

RootsTech 2019 – Day 4 Recap

Going into the last day of RootsTech I knew I wanted to finalize what I wanted to purchase at the expo hall, and I had two sessions that I wanted to attend.  Today was a short day.  The last session was at 3pm and the expo hall closed at 2pm.  Not to mention I wanted…

RootsTech 2019 – Day 3 Recap
