It’s almost time. As of today, Feb. 27th, we are 4 days away from the start of RootsTech 2022. We are super excited about RootsTech. Although we wish we were in Salt Lake City in person, we’re glad virtual is an option again this year.
If you would like to participate in RootsTech, it’s not too late. Go to RootsTech.org to register. Here’s the great news…it’s FREE to register. Yep, you read that right. It’s FREE! You just can’t beat it. With your registration, you get access to hearing inspiring keynote speakers (more on that later), UNLIMITED access to over 1,500 sessions, access to the Expo Hall, and much more.
One feature we’re looking forward to is Relatives at RootsTech. There are more than 500,000 people registered from almost 200 countries and by participating, you can find if any of those registered people from around the world are related to you. To use this service, you’ll need to:
- Create a FamilySearch account for FREE!
- Add as many relatives as possible to your family tree, both living and deceased.
- View the list of your relatives and how you are related.

If you’re familiar with RootsTech, you know they invite very inspiring speakers to their main stage each day of the conference. The good thing about these speakers is they come from many different cultures and religions. You’ll hear many stories about heritage and tradition. Below are a few of the keynote speakers you’ll hear from this year.
- Molly Yeh, TV Host and Cookbook author
- Azumah Nelson, Ghanian Boxer
- Thaís Pacholek, Brazilian Actress
You can also grab some RootsTech gear from the RootsTech store. To shop, use this link: https://rootstech.mybrightsites.com/
We hope you consider registering for the conference and hopefully being able to either find relatives or learn more about researching your family or maybe both.
