My Family Married Each Other a Lot and Other Musings from RootsTech

When an offhand remark from RootsTech ended up on Twitter, I knew I must have had the attention of a few people!

Four lectures in four days along with a few booth demos of Ancestry Academy left me pretty tired, but it was worth it. Great groups of people in all of my classes – I had a great time.

The more I teach, the more I am convinced, conference goers love methodology. Tell me how to do something! I’m including links for PDFs of all of my talks. And a pointer to the livestream of my search talk.

If you were in my classes, thanks for attending!
