RootsTech: New Workshop Opening Soon

The following is from RootsTech.

Hands-on computer workshops are one of the popular features at RootsTech. This year we doubled the number of workshops offered and increased seating capacity in each by 40%. We've been amazed at how quickly workshops have filled up!

We're pleased to announce that an additional workshop has been added to the schedule.  
Techniques for Successful Searching, taught by Alan Mann Friday, March 22 at 3:00 p.m.  

Description: Using examples from actual family research, attendees will conduct searches on several web sites. Along the way, attendees learn why a single search is flawed research and why they should document their searches. Learn how to find ancestors that would otherwise remain hidden by changing search parameters and using filters. 

Registration for this workshop will be open at noon (MDT) on Monday, January 21, 2013
with 50 workstations and 20 laptop stations available. 

To edit your registration and add this workshop, simply click the "edit registration" link on the Rootstech registration page, enter your email address and password, and then work through the registration process.  The new workshop will be listed on  the workshop page, which comes after the lunch and the event pages.


The hands-on workshops are just a portion of what makes RootsTech a great conference. Over 250 class sessionswith world class content will be presented by experts and enthusiasts in the in the family history and technology industry. These sessions don't require pre-registration-seating for sessions is on a first come, first seated basis.
