The Heirloom Registry is really a great example of how traditional genealogy and modern technology can be efficiently and beautifully combined, which is really what RootsTech is all about.
Salt Lake City (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
The RootsTech Expo Hall – at the Salt Palace Convention Center – will be open starting on Thursday at 10 a.m. The show concludes at 3 p.m. on Sunday.
Houstory founders/brothers Mike and Dan Hiestand will be running a demonstration of The Heirloom Registry on Thursday in the Demo Theatre at 11:20 a.m. Additionally, the company is planning an on-site scavenger hunt that will feature a Flip-Pal® mobile scanner as a grand prize.
The show – which last year included 4,000 registered attendees from 46 U.S. states, six Canadian provinces and 23 additional countries – will be a great fit for The Heirloom Registry, said Houstory Marketing Director Dan Hiestand.
“With so many great speakers, classes and companies in attendance – all with a shared passion for family history – the show should be a lot of fun,” Hiestand said. “The Heirloom Registry is really a great example of how traditional genealogy — for example, taping a note to the back of a family clock that gives its provenance — and modern technology can be efficiently and beautifully combined, which is really what RootsTech is all about.”
The 3rd annual RootsTech conference has something for everyone, whether you are an avid genealogist, just beginning, or simply want to discover the latest technologies and solutions to better connect with your family. You will learn things like how and where to start with your family history and how to use the latest technology to solve real research problems. With world-class content from speakers all over the country, an exciting exhibitor hall, and great keynote speakers, RootsTech is being re-tooled for young and old alike, regardless of expertise.
