PREPARE for RootsTech Connect (it's THIS week!)

Thanks to Hilary Gadsby, our gal in Wales, for sharing info about this essential prep video from RootsTech. We watched it live with a few friends and are amazed by the sneak peek of what it will look like when we go to at 7pm Eastern on Wednesday 24th for the Expo Hall Preview (dedicated time before the 11pm Keynote on the Main Stage).
