Mormon Tabernacle Choir Mini-Concert for RootsTech

The Ancestry Insidere is an official RootsTech bloggerThe Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform a mini-concert, “Story and Song,” for RootsTech attendees on Thursday evening, 21 March 2013, from 8:45 to 9:30 p.m. in the historic Tabernacle on Temple Square. The concert will follow their regular weekly rehearsal, which the public is also invited to attend, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The choir will perform numbers such as "High on a Mountaintop," "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing," and Irving Berlin's "God Bless America." Special remarks will be provided by Elder Allan F. Packer, executive director of FamilySearch.

RootsTech for Family History Consultants

FamilySearch last week announced that several special opportunities will be available at RootsTech for family history consultants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Two free training classes will be held for consultants, FamilySearch center directors, and indexing directors. These can be attended in person, but will also be streamed live for viewing anywhere in the world. These sessions will cover working with priesthood leaders, helping members receive the blessings of the temple, and using resources available through FamilySearch. Register to attend in person at http://www.rootstech.org/fhcallings.

Additionally, devotionals will be held featuring leaders of the Church, including Elder Allan F. Packer, First Quorum of the Seventy; Elder Paul E. Koelliker, First Quorum of the Seventy; Elder Bradley D. Foster, Second Quorum of the Seventy; David L. Beck, Young Men General President; and Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women General President. I imagine one or more of these will also be streamed live.

Consultants may wish to tell the youth of their wards the opportunities available for young people ages 11-18. For more information, see http://www.rootstech.org/youth.

The RootsTech Expo Hall is free and open to the general public. Consultants can talk to vendors and FamilySearch employees to learn the latest in technology and genealogy products and features.

See you at RootsTech!
