RootsTech Conference Virtual Tips for us stay-at-homes

The Armchair Genealogist: RootsTech Conference: 10 Tips to Make the Most of Your Virtual Experience:

'via Blog this'
If, like me, you can't attend the RootsTech Conference in Salt Lake City starting tomorrow Mar 21, check out the blog above for some great advise on how to take advantage of the conference virtually (and free). Between the live-streaming of some of the sessions and conversations on twitter and facebook, we can feel involved in the experience.

Lynn Palermo, The Armchair Genealogy, even mentions a great use for Evernote which will be the topic of our EGS meeting tomorrow, Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 7:00pm at the Gail Borden Public Library.
