RootsTech London 2019 Competition

LondonBadges_1200x717pxAmbassadorAs a RootsTech London Ambassador I have the opportunity to host a give away for the event of a compliementary three day pass (worth £149). There is no restrictions on how I choose to host the give away. So read to the bottom of this post to see how to enter.

RootsTech London will take place 24-26 October 2019 at the Excel Centre, London

RootsTech is a well know and respected event in the US and is a very different type of genealogical event compared to what we are used to here in the UK.

The focus is on learning and the attending of classes, which are simply presentations. There are also some workshop type events. There are stands, or as they are known in the US, booths and of course attendees get the opportunity to attend as many of the classes as they wish or computer labs which name for the workshops. You can also visit many different types of genealogical stands. I know a number of genealogical societies that are attending, as are genealogical commercial organisations.

The price to attend is currently £49 for one day and £99 for all three day.  The website for more information can be found HERE and the schedule is also available HERE. IMG_1105I shall be personally talking on Delving Deep into Migration, to and from the British Isles on Thursday.

The complimentary three day pass will include the following:

  • Over 150 classes (see schedule)
  • Key note and General sessions
  • Expo Hall
  • Evening event

As an additional treat, I personally offer an additional prize of a Guild of One-Name Studies membership bundle which will include:
