RootsTech2015: Laura Bush and daughter Jenna

Some days I just love my job - and today is one of them! RootsTech organizers have just announced Laura Bush and Jenna Bush Hager will provide a keynote address at RootsTech 2015. The massive family history conference will be held 11-14 February 2015.

 Here's the official announcement:
RootsTech 2015 attendees will get to hear firsthand how one of the nation’s most famous families celebrates their family across generations.  RootsTech, the largest family history conference in the world, announced today that former First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna Bush Hager will be the keynote speakers during the Friday morning general session on February 13, 2015.
 The former First Lady will talk about life in the White House and the importance of family during those eight years, as well as reflect on the difficult days following September 11th. Jenna Bush Hager will join her mother onstage for a fireside chat where they will share family stories as a new mother and grandmother.                                                                                    
FamilySearch CEO, Dennis Brimhall, is excited to welcome the Bush family. ”As we celebrate families across generations this year, I can’t think of more fitting guests to have join us.  This will be quite memorable.”  FamilySearch is the host organization for RootsTech.

Hager currently works as a contributor for NBC’s The Today Show and editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. She enjoys spending as much time as possible with her daughter, Margaret Laura “Mila” Hager.

In addition to being a loving mother and grandmother, Mrs. Bush is a best-selling author, founder of the National Book Festival in Washington D.C. and Chair of the Women’s Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute.  Laura Bush served as First Lady while her husband, George W. Bush was President of the United States from 2001-2009.  Her father-in-law, George H.W. Bush was President of the United States from 1989-1993.

Visit and reserve your seat to hear Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna Bush Hager.  Passes start at just $19.

RootsTech, held February 12-14, 2015 and hosted by FamilySearch, is the largest global family history event in the world! The fifth annual conference—celebrating families across generations—is the perfect place to discover and share your family's stories and connections through technology.
