I do love me a good genealogy conference. Next month I will be attending RootsTech for the very first time. National genealogy conferences usually have around 1000-1500 attendees. I was told that around 25,000 people attend RootsTech. The more the merrier I always say.
In the coming weeks I will be writing about how to prepare for a national conference - what to wear, what to bring, and more.
For now, have a gander at the photos below and you can see for yourself why I love me a good genealogy conference.
