If our current winter weather trend continues, I think staying inside and blocking out time to attend RootsTech 2022 is a great idea. Even though this winter seems long, we will be welcoming March next week! RootsTech is March 3-5, 2022.
If you haven’t registered for the event yet, you can do so here: RootsTech 2022 • FamilySearch
Registration is free. And the best part is that you can enjoy the sessions post conference. So, if next week is busy and you can’t attend every day, you will have the option to go back and revisit sessions that you missed.
It looks like there is information available to peruse in the Expo Hall now. Visiting the “booths” is one of my favorite activities at a physical conference. Each company has a page with more links and downloadable items and information to help your research, store your family heirlooms and more.
I know what I’ll be doing this week. Invest in yourself and your family history by taking advantage of this learning opportunity! Have fun!

Images in FamilySearch
Have you used the image search in FamilySearch? A friend mentioned it to me the other day, so I checked it out. There are so many ways to search for information on FamilySearch, but this was one I hadn’t tried. Let’s look.
