Access RootsTech 2020 Sessions When and Where You Want
[Editor’s Note: I just received the following press release from FamilySearch containing the release of the RootsTech 2020 Live Streaming Schedule. I am a paid speaker and an ambassador for RootsTech this year. Please read full disclosure information below. ]
We’re excited to announce the RootsTech virtual pass! With the virtual pass, you’ll have access to 30 online recorded sessions from the conference. You can watch playbacks from your laptop, tablet, or smartphone device whenever and however you’d like – all for just $129!
The virtual pass is perfect for any genealogist who is unable to travel to Salt Lake City and attend the conference in person. Already planning on attending but want access to more content? Add the virtual pass on to your existing registration for only $79!
Save money and further your family history skills? Now that’s convenient.
3 Reasons to Consider a Virtual Pass
Learn at Your Own Pace
The virtual pass allows you to soak up knowledge and improve your family history skills on your own time and at your own pace. Watch your favorite sessions multiple times. Pause, rewind, and take notes to ensure you get the most from every session.
Eliminate the cost of travel, lodging, and transportation. Not to mention, paying only $129 to see 30 of the world’s best genealogy presentations is a pretty sweet deal.
Made for Your Lifestyle
We understand that life is busy and that you can’t always spend all day doing family history. (Wouldn’t that be great, though?) The virtual pass was built to accommodate your busy schedule. Pick and choose the sessions you want to watch, and access them whenever you’d like for an entire year.

Session recordings will begin posting 10-15 days after the conference. You will receive an email alerting you when the videos are available to view. Simply log in to the Virtual Pass page, and select the sessions you want to watch.
To keep the cost of the virtual pass low, classes on the virtual pass will not be streamed. They will be recorded, edited, and then posted within 10 days of the event. However, a number of classes will be streamed for free on the RootsTech home page during the event. See the free streaming schedule here.

You will have playback access for 12 months from the date the videos post. Watch and rewatch as many times as you’d like!
The virtual pass offers some of the best genealogy and family history content from the biggest names in the industry. Experience the first 7 days after we post the recordings and see if it’s right for you. If you believe it’s not right for you and you don’t want access to any more recorded content, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org within 7 days after the videos post and we’ll refund your money and cancel your access.
