Saroo Brierley at RootsTech 2019

The first celebrity keynote speaker for RootsTech has been announced. Friday's special speaker is Saroo Brierley. Many will know about Saroo from his book, A Long Way Home, or from the movie based on his book, Lion

At age 5, Saroo was sent from India to Australia where he was adopted. His adoptive mother helped to keep his memories alive and as he got older, Saroo used Google Earth to remember his homeland and other technology to eventually reunite with his birth family. 

This promises to be a talk that will require hankies and it is most likely that there won't be a dry eye in the house as we listen to Saroo's riveting story of finding his family of origin. Here is a sneak peak:
