RootsTech: Countdown, Update!

We’re five weeks from RootsTech and counting downRTOfficialBlog_B! The folks at RootsTech have sent out this registration update and contest invitation:

“Early bird registration has been extended for one more week.  The $149 price will expire on 2/22/2013.  We’ve seen some great momentum in registrations this week. So, we want to give every opportunity for folks to take advantage of the reduced price on a full conference pass.  After 2/22 the price will move to a “last chance” price of $179 for a full conference pass. The “last chance” price will expire on 3/16, at which point the price will go to $219.

As you know, Story@Home is a new addition to RootsTech this year.  Story@Home offers class sessions with award-winning storytellers, performers, and speakers to help attendees explore ways to use the power of story to connect with their family.  We’re excited about the new perspective and dimension Story@Home adds to the RootsTech experience.  You can learn more about Story@Home at www.rootstech.org/stories.

Our friends at Story@Home are running an Instagram Photo Contest.  Official RootsTech bloggers are invited to help spread the word.  Here are the contest details:
