Not being at RootsTech this year is hard for me. It is absolutely my favorite genealogy conference. The amount of genealogists, vendors and gatherings within a few short days makes this the conference not to miss. Add to that Dr. Henry Louis Gates and I am still wondering why I am at home! Oh yeah, finances also play a major roll in these decisions. Obviously, the general session is on my must watch list today. I have listed to other lectures by Dr. Gates in the past and I do not plan to miss this one. I truly want to meet him. Beyond Dr. Gates, it is another full day of sessions that should not be missed for those at home!
