Research Notes 2020-2-24

Research Notes masthead

RootsTech kicks off Wednesday in Salt Lake City. Utah in February is way too cold for me, but that doesn’t mean I’ll miss RootsTech. There are a number of presentations that will be streamed online for free. You’ll find the Free Streaming Schedule at Just remember that the schedule is listed in mountain standard time. There is a link to a time zone converter on the schedule page.

You can also add the RootsTech app to your mobile device (Apple & Android). It gives you access to the conference schedule, exhibitors list, RootsTech documents and downloads. The Social Media button takes you to the latest posts from attendees.


The FamilySearch Community has hit the road running and is full of useful information and a growing number of members sharing what they know. Already there is an impressive number of groups. I have joined the FamilySearch Tips and Tricks, Ancestor Treasures, England Genealogy Research, German Genealogy Research, United States Genealogy Research and Events – Near and Far.


Here’s a look at the Ancestor Treasures group. If you are chasing your German ancestors, the Germany Genealogy Research group can be a lot of help. Need someone who can translate a German record? This is the place!

Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday – the last day before Lent begins. There are many different ways for families to enjoy the day. There’s Carnival in Italy, Fasching in Germany and Mardi Gras in Louisiana. We’ll be combining a bit of each of these festivities – mostly the food – as part of our celebration.

Does your family have any special traditions related to Fat Tuesday? If so, why don’t you share them so those traditions will continue with future generations.

Bon appetite y’a all!
