Drew is heading to RootsTech

I'm excited to be attending yet another RootsTech in Salt Lake City, and I already have quite the busy schedule there!  If you find yourself there, you can see me present (twice) a brand-new hands-on workshop about advanced features of Evernote...although the workshops are an extra charge (and I don't know if there remain any openings).  I'll also be making two of my favorite presentations, one that's an introduction to DNA testing (I'm also giving that one twice) and one about using the FAN club principle to break through brick walls.

In addition to all those regularly scheduled presentations, I'll be giving a brief booth talk on the topic of newspaper research at the MyHeritage booth on Thursday morning. I'm looking forward to a dinner with some of my fellow members from the Guild of One-Name Studies.  And speaking of meals, I'm also attending a number of breakfast, lunch, and dinner events sponsored by major genealogy organizations.  (I will have to get serious about dieting when I get home!)

But perhaps more important than anything else, I'll be at the Vivid-Pix booth at the same time each morning of RootsTech, to be part of the announcements of the winners of the Unsung Heroes Award. 

In addition to seeing lots of friends, I plan to bring along my digital voice recorder and grab a few quick interviews with people I haven't spoken with lately.  These will likely turn up in some of the next episodes of The Genealogy Guys Podcast.

For me, the travel starts early Tuesday morning.  RootsTech 2019 Salt Lake City, here I come!
