RootsTech is B I G
Who am I? Where did I come from? What makes me tick? What struggles did my great, great Grandparents have and what can they teach me? Did my Grandmothers Mother struggle with the same illness’, how did my Father’s Father work so hard each day to provide for his 8 children?
If they can do it, so can I. They are part of me, and I’m a part of them. Our Ancestors influence us, we are a part of their DNA.
I attended RootsTech with my family last February 2015. We had so much fun! My boys found photos of their great great Grandfathers and thought it was the coolest thing. I created the above 12×12 layout on my phone with the Project Life™ iOS App and printed it for our family photo album. It’s the story of the story and I love it!
Day One of RootsTech I attended alone, but you’re never alone. I found friends from other States whom I hadn’t seen in a long time! I connected with social media acquaintances and met some inspiring people along the way. You don’t need a BFF by your side to attend RootsTech, you’ll meet new people, and you’ll run out of sides! 🙂
