Not all of us were able to attend Rootstech or even to catch the real-time streamed sessions. Fortunately, Rootstech is the conference (aka gift) that keeps on giving.
You can watch select videos via youtube.
Additionally, I know of at least two “stakes” in my community who over the next 1-2 months are holding family history fairs where the majority of the programming will be based on re-broadcasting Rootstech sessions. This is a neat way to bring national speakers into the local community. And, for the two I know of being held in the RTP area of NC, admission is free. Additionally, one of them is setting up tables during the lunch break for local genealogy societies and interested parties to use.
If English isn’t the predominant language in your community that’s not a problem, you might find that after 1 April, your family history fair can accommodate Rootstech sessions in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
Don’t forget that you can also access Rootstech 2014 syllabus materials.
And, if you also missed Rootstech in 2013, check out its video archive.
