If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you probably know that I love RootsTech. I’ve written about it here. Plus, you can probably guess, since I’ve branded myself as Genealogy Jen, that attending the world’s largest genealogy conference is the highlight of my year. I feel like a total nerd writing that, but it’s true.
If I had time to make a paper chain this year to count down the days, I would. Okay, I probably wouldn’t do that because I don’t know where the heck I would put it. I haven’t unpacked
all most of the boxes since we moved into this rental house last May.
While RootsTech is a great value at only $299 (early pricing for $209 ends January 25, 2019.) I know that for some people, that can be a lot of money depending on your situation. My husband and I spent years struggling financially. (I’ve written about that here.)
I was able to get a RootsTech pass in 2017, because my friend Thomas MacEntee from Abundant Genealogy gave me a scholarship for one. I was able to attend classes, make connections with fellow genealogists, and further my learning. I wouldn’t have been able to attend otherwise. It was a huge blessing for me.
I want to give that same blessing to someone else.
As a RootsTech Ambassador this year, I have the opportunity to host a RootsTech 2019 free pass giveaway. I can give my pass away however I choose.
It’s simple, tell me why you want to go. Why do you need, want or deserve a free pass for yourself? Maybe you have a financial need like I did? Maybe you want to meet one of your genealogy idols in person? Maybe you will add diversity as an attendee? Whatever it is, I want to know.
(If you want the pass to give to another person like your Great Aunt Betty Lou or your neighbor Kathy Sue, have them enter themselves.)
Jen, I’m so excited to win a RootsTech 2019 pass! How do I enter?
