I wasn't going but.... I am.

As we have quite a number of holidays planned for 2019 including a commitment to attend Rootstech, London in 2019 I decided that it would be sensible to stay home for a while. Just yesterday I got a message that Salt Lake City Ambassadors need to register for that event by 31 October, 2018 (that's today) and my mind was made up - I would be a #notatrootstech Ambassador this year.

Fast forward to today and Qantas, our favourite airline, had a special "Companion Airfare Offer" where two people could fly for the price of one. I mentioned this to Mr GeniAus when he came in for lunch and suggested that it would for fun for him to accompany me and travel to Salt Lake City via Seattle (a city near the top of our bucket list) in February. He agreed!

I just booked our flights from Sydney to Seattle and from Salt Lake City back home. We arrive in Seattle on 15 February 2019 and leave Salt Lake City on March 3. I am definitely attending  Rootstech in Salt Lake CityLuckily months ago I had booked four nights (all I could get)  at The Marriott Downtown City Creek so we have accommodation during the Conference.  Now I need to work out our itinerary for the rest of our trip - suggestions most welcome. My immediate task is to register.

I am so excited to be able to partake in the geneafest of  educational opportunities Rootstech offers. Catching up with the many genimates I have made at Rootstech over the past 9 years is the icing on the cake. As a proud Australian I love to fly our flag at Rootstech.

  1. You just could not resist could you. I am sure you will have fun at Rootstech, I can't get to Salt Lake but am intending to go to all 3 UK shows next year, so perhaps we can meet up at one of them.

    1. RootsTech is such a great experience I hope the London event whets your appetite. It will be different to SLC but both this and The Genealogy Show promise to be truly international events.

  2. Jane, I am going to THE Genealogy Show in Birmingham and Rootstech London - Look forward to seeing you there.

  3. We will have so much fun Hilary - fingers crossed that Rootstech will have an Aussie Ambassador.

  4. So glad to hear you're going, I'm sure it wouldn't be the same without you. I will be a #notatroottech participant for next year, so I shall be watching from afar.

  5. As Alona said, it would not be the same without you. Some days I just want to win big at lotto so I can go to loads of conferences still excited about going to London next year.


I'd love to hear what you have to say so I encourage you to say G'day in comments on my posts.
