President's Message - April 2018
Well, RootsTech 2018 is over. It was everything we expected, and more. The statistics show:


Of the 17,210 registrations, all 50 states were represented as well as 43 countries. This is the first RootsTech that had a participant from all the states. You can read a great review at https://tiny.cc/do2ury. All the live streams are now available, and you can find them at https://tiny.cc/w12ury.

Last month I mentioned Relative Finder (https://relativefinder.org) and suggested that each you login and join the FHSA group (https://tiny.cc/fhsarelatives) but I see that no one has taken advantage of that. I find that disappointing. The RootsTech organizers had FamilySearch setup a geo-fenced version of the Relatives Around Me app available in the FamilySearch app. Using that app, we were able to see which registrants were related to us, assuming they were in the building. They did limit the connections to approximately 300, and I found a number of 3rd and 4th cousins. Below is a picture of a bunch of us at the event:


BTW: Apparenlty I had entered a password to enter the FHSA group, I have removed it. If you tried it earlied, give it another try.
