    RootsTech London!

    Early bird pre-registration is open for RootsTech London!

    From the SoG newsletter: "You must register before the end of Saturday 2 March. You can buy a full 3-day conference pass for £89. Or, if you can only attend for one day, you can buy a 1-day pass for £49. Your pass, at this reduced price, enables you to attend the keynote sessions and attend all class sessions and gives you access to the exhibition hall."

    I've signed up for the Friday.

    Ouch that’s really expensive.

    Compare that to Family Tree Live in April 26/27th at £10 per ticket and all lectures and workshops free, plus a free 20 minute consultation with an expert, there is no comparison.

    Most people are on a budget and roots tech does seem ludicrously expensive to me.

    It's the big one though with the big names in the genealogical world who need paying and generally on a bigger scale altogether. FTL has a small number of workshops most of which (at least the ones I want to go to or can get to) appear to be full already and a smaller number of exhibitors too. I'll be able to make up my own mind if my ticket to FTL ever arrives.

    Is anyone else going? I know Paul is now. I shall be there on the Friday, trains etc. permitting.

    The programme is looking very interesting.

    London is just too far away for me. That’s why I never went to WDYTYA either. Then they moved it to Birmingham which was still a big hike. Was delighted when they came to Glasgow but sadly I couldn’t go. I thought, never mind, I’ll go next time only to discover they pulled the plug after only one visit.

    Even though I am much closer than you, it's going to be a very, very long day!

    There is a mobile app for anyone who is going to be there.

    The Android link doesn't appear to work.

    It is possible to get a virtual pass for the three days to watch some but not all the workshops etc. online instead:

    or there is a free live stream: https://www.rootstech.org/london/live-stream-schedule

    That virtual pass sounds really good but I’ve looked everywhere on the site (I think) and can’t see a list of the which classes etc. are excluded. Does anybody know?

    Yes I’m definitely there for all 3 days
