Attend RootsTech from your home computer

The Ancestry Insider just posted how all you genealogists out there can gain free online access to some of the sessions at the RootsTech Family History and Technology Conference being held in Salt Lake City tomorrow through Saturday, Feb. 4th. Click here to learn more.

A very neat feature is that most of the sessions have hand-outs. For example, the session "Do I Trust the Cloud" has a PDF (or .doc) document that spells out the basics of cloud computing, the benefits, and the concerns attached to cloud computing - as it relates to privacy and personal data within the genealogical process.

Don't forget to make the adjustments from Mountain time to Eastern time.
