Valerie is speaking at #RootsTech 2019

valerie25Many know of my partner in “Excellent Genealogy Adventures” Valerie Elkins from her blogging and posting on social media about family history, but did you know that she worked for years as an International Research Consultant at the Family History Library, has her own research company and has served on numerous genealogy boards, like the Association of Professional Genealogists?


This year at Rootstech in Salt Lake City, Feb 27 – March 2, Valerie will be presenting the following classes:

  • Blending Family History and Tech with the Art of Storytelling

  • Making the Leap – Becoming a Professional Genealogist               Live-Streamed

  • Writing Powerful Family History Stories

  • Discover Your Japanese Ancestors Live-Streamed

  • Youth + Family History = Magic

Rootstech is offering free live-streaming classes, check out the schedule here. New to Rootstech this year is the Virtual Pass, where you can watch select recorded classes from home (these are different from the live-streamed classes). You can sign up for the Virtual Pass here.

Valerie is an official Rootstech Ambassador, so if you are attending Rootstech – stop by the media hub, or one of her classes and say hi, as she would love to meet you in person!

Don’t forget you can also come hear her speak at THE Genealogy Show in Birmingham, England, June 7-8, 2019.
