Geniaus joining a Stellar Lineup


Amateur Aussie genealogist and blogger, Geniaus, is joining some of the genealogy blogging world's heavyweights as an Official Rootstech Blogger. It's very new news so my mugshot has not yet appeared on the site but will in due course. I am thrilled to be in a lineup with these stars.

As a midget among  giants and the only blogger from the Southern Hemisphere in the Rootstech lineup I hope to bring a different perspective to the many posts that will be sent in the leadup to, during and after the conference.

As an Official Blogger I have the opportunity to interview some of the experts who will be at the event. What an awesome opportunity - I hope I can manage to keep my wits together and create some interesting podcasts.

I have only ever been to conferences in the US as a partner not as a delegate. I have found them to be huge events with a couple of thousand attendees so different from the more intimate gigs we have downunder. The venue for Rootstech, Salt Palace Convention Center, looks enormous so I am wondering how many people will be joining me in Salt Lake City.

You'll be able to read all about it right here.

It's certainly a long way from Sydney.
I am a lucky old girl who is going to have a ball.

Looking forward to meeting you in person! We can swap genealogy stories in the bloggers area.

Can't wait to meet you Jill! There should be about 1,000 people in attendance. This will not only be an educational event but lots of fun as well!

Congratulations on the "official" status. I'm looking forward to meeting you. Are you coming early for some Family History Library time?

Joan, Thomas and Amy. Can't wait to meet you all - I will be arriving on the Wednesday afternoon - hopefully heading straight to the FHL and staying on for three days after the conference.
