In the last week or so, the organisers of the upcoming RootsTech London genealogy conference have announced two significant free elements to the event:
As I mentioned in last week’s blog post, selected sessions from the conference will be available to watch live online. These include all the keynote speakers over the three days of the event: Dan Snow, Nick Barrett, Kadeena Cox, Steve Rockwood, and Donny Osmond.
Two additional presentations each day will be livestreamed. Click on "Free Livestream" above to see the schedule. The talks begin at 9 a.m. on Thursday 24 October. These sessions will also be available to view on demand online afterwards.
Here you can claim your free pass for one, two or three days to the RootsTech Exhibition Hall – this gives you access to interactive features including the DNA Basics Learning Centre, family games, and the Discovery Zone.
You’ll also be able to browse the vendor stalls and exhibition stands where organisations are flogging their wares, so if you’re prepared to spend, go with a budget in mind.
The Exhibition Hall will be open from 9.45 a.m. each day; the different closing times are listed on the website.
Do bear in mind that the free hall pass does not entitle you to attend any of the classes, presentations, or keynote addresses. The website has information about how to buy full day passes which will enable you to go to as many of the classes as you want to. Tip: My talk's at 9 a.m. on Saturday 26 October, Room 15, Level 3 😁
