As an Official Blogger for RootsTech, I get to share news with you before it’s made public. Here’s some news about the Thursday morning (Mar. 21) keynote speakers. I’ve actually had the chance to meet all three and look forward to hearing from them at the event.
DENNIS C. BRIMHALL
Dennis Brimhall is currently the President and CEO of FamilySearch International. FamilySearch International is a worldwide organization helping individuals find, preserve, catalogue, and search genealogical information. I first met Dennis Brimhall at RootsTech but have had opportunity to communicate with him on various projects.
Syd is a nationally acclaimed storyteller, an author, and an award-winning teacher. Many of his best-loved stories deal with growing up in Chicago and raising a family in Evanston, Illinois. Syd is also known for his original historical pieces. I met Syd at the Story@Home event last year and truly enjoyed is storytelling personality.
D. JOSHUA TAYLOR
D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS is the Business Development Manager – North America for brightsolid online publishing, the creator of findmypast.com. A nationally known and recognized professional genealogist, lecturer, genealogical author, and researcher, Taylor is the current president of the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS). Josh and I met years ago while serving the Utah Genealogical Association and he is truly committed once he takes on a project.
I’m carefully selecting the presentations I will be attending and look forward to sharing some of my findings with you.
RootsTech had a booth at our Arizona Expo and will have one at the upcoming St. George Expo too, so if you have questions be sure to stop by and ask them. We are excited to be promoting this event to those of you who can make it. You won’t be disappointed!
