The Night before Rootstech

'Twas the night before #rootstech and all through the palace the genies were stirring... 

Each year on the evening before  Rootstech officially kicks off Familysearch and Rootstech host a Media Dinner for Sponsors, VIPs and  Media (including Rootstech Ambassadors).

This veteran Ambassador has attended 7 out of 8 of these functions where we are treated to some fun activities, fed a nice 3 course meal in congenieal company, have opportunities to win some fab prizes and hear about the conference from important or famous folk (most of whom I don't know because I am Australian).

Tonight there were some people from a local TV show Relative Race who emceed  and spoke about the program, Then Jen Allen, Rootstech Director shared some Rootstech statistics and news, she told us that up until today 14,200 people had registered for Rootstech. These included folk from all the US States and more than 40 countries. There are 60 new vendors out of a total of 197 - that's a lot of geneastuff to explore!

Of course, like many fellow attendees I had my phone camera poised during the proceedings.
