The Devil's Wh0re

Streaming Sessions @ 2015 RootsTech

RootsTech is a genealogy conference geared towards technology that is held yearly in Salt Lake City, Utah, and will be held February 11–14, 2015. They are live-streaming several sessions later this week, and according to the streaming info page, they will be available on their website after the conference ends for a limited time. I've seen talks given by several of these speakers (virtually, that is) and even if it's a topic that you are familiar with, they often can come up with an angle that will provide some new info for you, or get you thinking about the subject in a slightly different way that might be helpful.

(I am assuming that these times are Mountain Time)
