RootsTech 16 is coming

“Registration for RootsTech will open on Tuesday, September 15, 2015. For a limited time, exclusive early bird discount pricing will be available on the RootsTech pass and the Rootstech and Innovator Summit pass, which will be available for $149 and $169 respectively. Mark your calendars today to be one of the first to register for what will be the most inspiring RootsTech ever.”

The above announcement was sent to folks who attended last years conference. MoCoGenSo board member Bill Hannah sent us these details. Perhaps he is trying to get more of us to attend. Did he feel lonely last year? (smile)

RootsTech has become the largest genealogy conference in the world. It is held each year in the middle of winter in Salt Lake City, Utah. This year’s session will be February 3-6, 2016.

Salt Lake City is just close enough to Monterey County that many of our members do attend once in a while. It is just far enough away to require a bit of planning. So, it is time to look for transportation and lodging as well as tickets.

Four Salt Lake City hotels are taking reservations for RootsTech 2016. The Salt Lake Marriott Downtown at City Creek, Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, Hilton Salt Lake City Center, and Radisson Hotel Salt Lake City Downtown will offer reduced rates to RootsTech conference attendees. Each hotel is conveniently located near the Salt Palace Convention Center. Click for more details.

BTW, official volunteers at the Family History Center get discounted tickets! Maybe it is time to rethink your volunteer plans for this year!

    If you’re thinking of going to RootsTech, don’t be limited by the hotels mentioned. As long as you get near their superb light rail system (TRAX – built for the Salt Lake Olympics) you’re fine. I was 3-4 miles away from the festivities, and only a 7 minute walk to the light rail stop. Worked like a charm!
