Talk Abstract:
RootsTech Connect 2021 was a virtual (online) family history conference sponsored by FamilySearch in Feb 2021 and was the first RootsTech conference to be entirely virtual and free. It had 1,500 sessions from 250 presenters in several languages and more than 1.2 million attendees from 240 countries. The videos of all keynotes and classes will be online and free until Mar of 2022 when RootsTech 2022 will take its place. This website is a major source of family history help, instruction, and inspiration. This class will discuss the website and how to use it. The notes for this class and related articles, all with active Internet links, are on my website https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html.
