Can't make it to Salt Lake City? No problem. RootsTech has that covered as well by offering a robust selection of courses available for online streaming. Each day of the conference begins with a general session featuring speakers such as Scott Hamilton and Henry Louis Gates Jr. (March 2 and 3, respectively). See their presentations live and enjoy others like "Advancing Your Genealogy Research with DNA," "Unlocking Roman Catholic Records," and "Finding the Answers: The Basics of WWII Research." See the full streaming schedule here. Not only can you live stream several sessions, but genealogy speakers and bloggers will be posting updates on their social media feeds.

Given that over 30,000 people attended RootsTech 2017, enjoying the conference from the comfort of home might be the way to go. Check out this post from the FamilySearch Blog on how to skip the crowds and still get the most out of RootsTech 2018.
