Frequently Asked Questions

When is RootsTech Connect?

RootsTech Connect will be live during February 25–27, 2021, at rootstech.org. All of the content will then be available following the live event for at least 12 months.

Why a virtual conference?

That’s a great question. A few reasons, really. First, the live events industry is changing and adapting currently, and that calls for innovation. Hosting this event online is the safest and most responsible action we can take for everyone involved.

Secondly, an online event means that we can truly turn this into a global celebration of family. Imagine how many people will now be able to participate in RootsTech without the barrier of travel or lodging. This is what gets me excited. We are focused on creating a true global event—meaning we’ll have content taught by presenters from all over the world, and many of the classes will be available in multiple languages. We’ll have an even greater number of companies to learn from in our virtual Expo Hall—from all over the world as well.

Is this online event replacing RootsTech in Salt Lake City 2021?

Yes. This virtual conference will replace the planned in-person event that was scheduled for February 3–6, 2021, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Is this really a free event?

Yes! This event is 100 percent free. We won’t ask for a credit card number. In a few months we will have a simple registration form that you can fill out, and we might ask for your mailing address so we can send you some RootsTech swag, but the event will be freely available online. We’d ask that you share this with your friends, family, or colleagues so that we can really expand the reach of the event.

Will classes be available in different languages?

Absolutely. One of our goals for this event is to have more content in more languages. We’re working on developing classes and content taught by people from around the world in a number of languages. More information will be available on the classes and speakers as the event approaches.

Aside from classes and the virtual marketplace, what other things can I look forward to?

RootsTech is more than just classes and the virtual marketplace. It’s about celebrating culture and heritage. Throughout the event, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a number of other activities, such as a homeland cooking demonstration, a yoga session to get the blood flowing, and so much more!

Will recordings be available on demand after the live event?

Yes. This event will have a combination of both livestream content and content that will be available on demand. So if you have to step away from the computer for a bit, no worries. All of the content will be available to you to enjoy on your own time.

I’m interested in teaching a class or sharing a family history cultural activity. What should I do?

If you’ve got an idea for a class session for RootsTech Connect, we’d love to talk with you. We’re currently gathering ideas and concepts for both classes and cultural experiences and demonstrations. We’re particularly interested in sessions taught in different languages. Dream big, and share with us your fun ideas. We’re looking for sessions based on the following topics:

  • Genealogical classes
  • Food and cultural demonstrations
  • Mind-break activities such as exercise, meditation, or yoga
  • Travel and world heritage
