What Is RootsTech?

The world’s largest family history gathering will start in a few days, on March 2, 2023, and registration for the event is open.

RootsTech is scheduled for March 2–4, 2023, and will include an in-person event in Salt Lake City, Utah and an extensive online conference.

RootsTech is a place to learn, be inspired, and make connections through family history. Hosted by FamilySearch and sponsored by other leading genealogy organizations, Rootstech has hundreds of expert classes, tips and tricks videos, and inspiring stories that can help you experience family history like never before. Visit the on-demand learning library, or make plans to join for the next virtual or in-person conference event.

Rootstech 2023 marks the 13th year of the conference, but it will be the first year since 2020 that the in-person experiences are being offered for the popular global event, which has been completely virtual since 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The theme for RootsTech 2023 is “Uniting.”

“RootsTech really is about uniting … with your family first and foremost, but also to connect with stories and discovery experiences through your family history …“We connect like-minded people who want to gather and learn similar things, [and] with new knowledge, learning, innovation and services that will help you make new connections to your family history.” (Jen Allen, director of events at FamilySearch).

In 2022, over 3 million people participated online. Each year, the event organizers adapt the content to attract people worldwide and to stay current, and the 2023 event for the first time will bring together the best of the virtual and in-person experiences.

Several keynote speakers have already being announced

At Rootstech 2023 there will be inspiring keynotes, entertainment and more than 200 new classes at the event. The Expo Hall will also return with over 200 exhibitors, product demonstrations and interactions with research specialists.
