  1. Roots Tech always has the BEST keynote speakers and this year is no different. I am most looking forward to hearing Dr Henry Louis Gates. I’ve been a fan for years, even way before Finding Your Roots!

  2. I am looking forward to going for the first time

  3. Well you inspired me to start my degree in family history! I’m going to BYU Idaho online! I want to go to this event and REALLY start my journey.

  4. I am looking forward to being with so many others who love what I love and don’t look at me strange and say why??? I am really looking forward to hearing Dr Henry Louis Gates speak in person.

  5. The speakers that kick off each day. And the opportunity to hear Henry Louis Gates, Jr is a real plus. And I’ll celebrate my birthday too (it’s one of those milestone years).

  6. I always look forward to the Expo Hall. I like to see the newest tech available for family history!

  7. Juliann Richens :

    Looking forward to reconnecting with old friends, learning more about what I live so much, ways to be a better family historian and help with my calling!

  8. Dianne Johnson :

    I am looking forward to learning more fun and creative ways to use family history to strengthen and bind my family together.

  9. Hi Valerie!! For RootsTech 2018, I am most looking forward to the familiar renewal of a sense that we are indeed all one big family. I love that everything about RootsTech connects us better to our history – our past, as well as our present and that everywhere you go, there’s something new to learn but that there’s also something new you can teach the next person. What an amazing time to celebrate our family!!

  10. I am looking forward to catching up with my geneapeeps and making new ones. The expo hall will figure prominently in my schedule. Thanks for this opportunity!

  11. Hi! I would love this opportunity to learn more that will allow me to better serve the members of my ward in my calling as the Temple and Family History Consultant.

  12. One thing I’m looking forward to at RootsTech, other than expanding my knowledge, is networking! I’m looking to get into professional genealogy, so I’m excited to start making some connections in the professional genealogy world! I really hope I win this!! I’m paying on student loans, and paying for NGS courses, so I’m feeling especially poor!

  13. I am looking forward to the speakers and learning all I can.

  14. I am looking forward to networking with others who passions about family history and genealogy match my own. I also look forward to attending the classes and learning as much as I can that will help me with my own family research and am looking towards next year when I plan on attending again.

  15. I’ve been addicted to genealogy since I was 14. I am now 39 and I have yet to attend a geneaology seminar. I would love to learn new strategies and technology to break through more of my brick walls. And to be in the company of so many fellow genealogy addicts!! 😉
