RootsTech Connect, hosted by FamilySearch, will be entirely online and completely free for the first time this year. Registration is open for what is considered the world’s largest family celebration event.
The free genealogy website FamilySearch.org has added 20 new languages since August, becoming the world’s largest genealogical service available to anyone in 30 total languages.
Similar to RootsTech based in the United States and ExpoGenealogía based in Mexico, FamilySearch Gerações will include keynote speakers, family history classes and activities. Sessions will be streamed live on FamilySearch Brazil’s YouTube, Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Those who speak Spanish or have Mexican heritage are invited to participate in ExpoGenealogía — a free, virtual family history event entirely in Spanish on October 30–31.
Find out where your ancestors are from—and ultimately where you are from—using FamilySearch’s new Where Am I From? activity.
