Not everyone can attend RootsTech in person. For some it is a bucket list dream. As RootsTech grows in the future, the footprint of the conference space will stay the same.

Here are 12 tips for getting the most out of RootsTech when you can't be in the studio audience.

Review the Conference Schedule

Identify classes that are interesting to you.  You can filter the schedule by Session Type, Date, Track, Class Category, Family History Skill Level, and/or Technology Skill Level.
