“RootsTech 2017 and FamilySearch”

Robert Raymond

Categories: LDS, IR

Talk Abstract:
RootsTech was held 8-11 February 2017 in the Salt Palace in Salt Lake
City, Utah. FamilySearch employees presented many classes — far more
than any one person could attend, but Robert gave it his best shot. He
will share with you many of the things that he heard, saw, and learned
about FamilySearch products during the four whirlwind days that were
RootsTech 2017. His talk will have a handout with helpful links of
related material.
