What is RootsTech
Usually held in Utah, in the USA, RootsTech is an annual family history conference. This year it is coming to London and will be at ExCel from 24-26 October.
What is a family history conference?
Well, over the three days of this event there will be more than 150 talks on subjects ranging from how to get started in tracing your family history and using DNA, through to ethical dilemmas and how to tell the best ten stories of your life. There are also keynote speakers including historian and TV presenter, Dan Snow, and Donny Osmond (who needs no introduction, surely!).
What will Restore be doing at the event?
Restore in partnership with the Ministry of Defence will be running a real-time facility for event visitors to search for family who have served in the armed forces.
It will be possible to search for relatives’ records and be handed a physical file within just three hours. Click here for more information on the Ministry of Defence medals and records experts at Rootstech London 2019.
Please note: You must bring with you to the event the death certificates of the relatives you would like to search the records for.
