RootsTech Live Streaming — Egg Faced and Corrected

Whoops, we’ve been notified that the schedule previously posted here was from 2013.  I have also discovered that Disk Eastman has removed his link to that schedule.  So, with much embarrassment and hand wringing, the schedule is changing!

Sorry for the confusion.  

Each year, the RootsTech Genealogy Conference live-streams a few of their many sessions.  Times are Mountain Standard, so do remember to subtract an hour for life on the Western Edge.

    Reblogged this on On Granny's Trail and commented:
    RootsTech is here! (Well, not HERE, because I am in Samoa), but it has arrived in Salt Lake City, and many sessions are being streamed online. So I guess you could say it really is here in Samoa…

    I looked everywhere for a schedule of classes that will be live-streamed, and found it on my very own genealogy society’s blog. Thank you Monterey County Genealogy Society! Here is a reblog of their post:
