Genealogy bloggers got a preview of the new RootsTech.org site last night at a FamilySearch blogger gala held on the 29th floor of the Hilton Springfield (one of the 2011 FGS Conference hotels.) As promised the site has gone live today. I checked earlier and it wasn't working, but now, all systems are go!
The site suggests an early-bird registration option of $129, but wait. There
is a discount price of $99 to pre-register for attendees of FGS who visit the
RootsTech booth at the conference and we are told we may "share" that
code with our friends. (DearMYRTLE is your friend in genealogy, right?)
As a masterful approach to marketing, the all-important code will be given out
tomorrow at the RootsTech booth in the FGS Conference exhibit hall, but it must be used prior to Saturday night, midnight. Once I receive the code, I'll
then Facebook and Twitter the code to save my DearREADERS an additional
$30. Note that I most likely won't get to my computer until much later in the evening tomorrow to blog the code to you.
Right now, Ol' Myrt here has got to quit blogging and get to another FGS Conference event -- the FGS Luncheon with Ransome Love speaking.

Happy family tree climbing!
