Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

Almost Time for RootsTech 2014 -

Are you going?

Have you registered?

Are you ready to go?

Have you exhausted all that you can in the Family History Library Catalog? Don't want to waste your time in the library going through the catalog. Do it now.

Only a few days left before those doors open.

Have you looked over the schedule and picked some sessions, and some alternates? Yes alternates, classes fill up real quick.Lots of extra events going on?  

Are you signed up for any thing else? Maybe late night at the library Friday evening- yes you need to sign up for that.

What electronics are you going to be taking with you to help you in your classes or at the library? After all it is RootsTech......  time to update yourself in the technology area. Did you know that there is again a Mobile APP (rootstech14) for the conference? YES! Make your life so much easier, install the app and fill in your schedule. Acess it whenever and wherever you are.

Have you checked out the vendors at the Expo Hall at the conference? See what they have ahead of time and make your wish list accordingly.

You say you are NOT going! Too bad! I will miss seeing you, BUT you can still participate, still learn - even from home. Did you know that there are over 13 free videos still available to watch on your computer from home that are from the 2013 RootsTech Conference.
