Sending A Spouse to Rootstech

What if you can’t make it to Rootstech? What if your spouse is in Salt Lake City on business that week? Send the spouse!


I put together a binder for him to bring. It included:rootstech - findmypast -IMG_0280

  • His electronic receipt for the keynote / vendor hall ticket
  • A list of the vendors, with notes about which ones to visit
  • His pedigree chart
  • His line of descendancy from Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins

While he walked around the vendor hall, he sent pictures. He also called to see if I needed the items on sale, or needed more information. The calls and pictures really were the next best thing to being there.

He followed those instructions, and collected a bag crammrootstech - NYGBS -IMG_0283ed full of information, bags and items given away at the vendor tables. He clearly enjoyed his time in the vendor hall.

Perhaps he was inspired by the beautiful family charts when he bought a printer capable of printing 12″ x 12″ sheets.  He mentioned that it would be good for printing fanrootstech - worlds largest -IMG_0286 charts and other family history. Is it possible he is hooked?
