Family Discovery Day at RootsTech will be an amazing day filled with classes, activities, messages, and events that will inspire you to find family names, take them to the temple, and teach others to do the same.
We are anticipating a very high number of people coming to Family Discovery Day. As such, we would like to encourage you and your group or family to arrive at least an hour before the opening general session, which starts at 1:00 p.m. Check-in for Family Discovery Day opens at 10:00 a.m. and will be located at the RootsTech registration area in the south foyer of the Salt Palace. You will need to show your picture ID upon check-in, after which you will receive wrist bands and bags based on the number of people you signed up online. This number should reflect the total number in your group, including adults, youth, and children.
