Day 2 at #RootsTech!

Day 2 was a full day, and for me, started at 8 am with a presentation by Findmypast The Ultimate Guide to Tracing British Isles Roots.This was a terrific overview of not only UK and Ireland but also working hard in America to be able to be ready to take your research overseas. 

Next up was the General Session with Keynote speaker Patricia Heaton who gave a heartwarming talk about the importance of family and family connections. Following her talk, Whitney Peterson of FamilySearch did a 'reveal' of research on Patricia's family history. 

In the afternoon, I attended a talk by Glen Meakem, CEO of Forever who talked about the Revolution in Multi-Generational Memory Keeping and Digital Rights. The personal stories that were shared by others were wonderful and so uplifting. 

In wandering around the Expo Hall, I was able to see and speak with a number of colleagues and once again recognized that THIS is my community. These are my people. THIS is where I belong.
