Seasoned Genealogy Track at #RootsTech 2017

RootsTech 2017 Seasoned Genealogy TrackI noticed this past week that RootsTech 2017 has called out a number of classes as a “Seasoned Genealogy Track.” (Insider joke: maybe that should have been “Seasoned Genealogists’ Track.”) While not all-inclusive of the professional-grade presenters at RootsTech, this track should forever dispel the notion that RootsTech is just for beginners. The track contains these classes:
