Mondays with Myrt - 2021RootsTech Connect Prep




DearREADERS,
WOW! An expanded 2-hour session exploring all things 2021 RootsTech Connect. Our syllabus for this webinar is DearMYRTLE's "PREPARE for RootsTech Connect (it's THIS week!)" found here: https://blog.dearmyrtle.com/2021/02/prepare-for-rootstech-connect-its-next.html This includes:

  • 4 Steps Myrt recommends
  •  an embedded FamilySearch video demonstrating what the RootsTech.org website will look like starting the first day of this huge conference.

RootsTech 365

YUP! These sessions will be accessible for 365 days! Panelist Randy Seaver, of GeneaMusings, says he will be hanging out in the Expo Hall talking with vendors and visiting booths. He will reserve watching class sessions 1 hour a day during the rest of the year. Sounds like a good plan! 

Betty writes "I wish the session list was a writable/fill-in PDF!  I don't currently have a working printer." Answer: No problem, you may search the list of sessions online, and click the + by those you wish to add to your playlist but you must register at www.RootsTech.org for the playlist function to be available to you.

Cyndy Bray asks "Will they not be using the App?" Answer: No, not this year. It's all available online at www.RootsTech.org 

Amanda Happel writes "I've registered but not able to find a Log in on RootsTech.org website." This is because the website won't change to permit your logging in until the conference begins.

Amanda Happel's follow-on question is "Can you tell more about what the ExpoHall is?" Answer: This year it's a virtual place where we can visit vendors and watch their demos. You'll find it on the top menu bar when the RootsTech.org website is changed for the conference that starts Wednesday,
