The 2018 RootsTech App: What you need to know!

The new 2018 RootsTech app was announced today, but before you run to the App store to grab it, you’ll want to read this.

In the iphone App store, there is only one RootsTech app, which you may download, or update if you still have last year’s app on your phone.  If you’re updating, when you open the app again, it will still show the 2017 data. Don’t worry!! It’s a simple in-app update to get all of the 2018 information.

To access the 2018 app…

If you still have last year’s app on your phone, start at the Home screen. In the bottom right corner will be the “Exit to Show List” icon. Click that. From there you will be able to choose RootsTech 2018. A click there and the app will update beautifully!

Peruse the classes, mark favorites, add to your own personal schedule. There’s lots to do to help you stay organized at the conference!

Updates are promised soon, as class syllabi are currently being added.  Updates will hopefully also include maps for the conference venue layout as well as the vendor hall.  Exhibitors are currently listed alphabetically, but booth numbers aren’t included, nor is the Expo hall map. Stay tuned!


A couple of questions for you

As we approach the end of our second full year of providing the most complete online calendar of genealogy events, we thought it would be a good time to ask for your input.

We’d like to know how we can best serve our followers. In the past, we have avoided sharing every new event added to our calendar, in the interest of not becoming yet another email in your inbox to delete. Rather, we’d like to be informative, helpful, and appreciated!

Please let us know how you feel about the following.

  1. We continue as we have, only posting occasional items of general interest including contest reminders or important deadlines.
  2. We add, or replace the current occasional email, with one regular weekly email which lists all the new items added to our calendar, plus any important upcoming deadlines and contests.
  3. We add, or replace the current occasional email with one regular weekly email which lists all of the events on our calendar for the upcoming week.

What would be most helpful to you? How can ConferenceKeeper better keep you informed of upcoming genealogy events?

We’d love to hear your thoughts!  Please either comment below, or email us, at

We’re looking forward to another great year of genealogy events!
