Get ready to explore the 2016 RootsTech Expo Hall
At this year’s conference, the RootsTech Expo Hall will be bigger than ever before. Come visit hundreds of family history and technology exhibitors sharing the latest products, services, and hands-on experiences available. Below is a small sample of activities and booths you’ll be able to explore at the RootsTech 2016 Expo Hall.

Family Discovery Zone—Sponsored by FamilySearch
The family discovery zone will be a fun, engaging, and interactive experience and will feature new and exciting technologies to help you discover and connect your family and stories. Stop by and experience the fun side of family history with these activities:
  • Photo Scanning Area: Bring your family photos! Make digital copies for free that you can preserve, share, and even upload directly to your FamilySearch family tree.
  • Recording Booth: Record Your Story! Your private recording session includes 10 minutes of recording time in a sound booth, and get a free copy of it on a flash drive.
  • Record a Call with Someone Who Inspires You: Simply call a parent, grandparent, or someone who inspires you, and find out more about his or her life. Our app will record the conversation and give you a personal copy as well.
FamilySearch Scanning Booth
Get your family book scanned for free. We’ll make a digital copy, and you'll keep the original and a searchable PDF copy for you. You can also donate personal works, family journals, and books that are in the public domain.
