Emerging Tech at RootsTech


Genealogy and technology—it’s a perfect blend. And where better to celebrate this blend than at the RootsTech Innovation and Technology Forum?

An attendee favorite, this forum at the RootsTech genealogy conference in Salt Lake City is where industry leaders share insights about innovation and their vision for the future. 

Steve Rockwood, president and CEO of FamilySearch International, introduced this year’s forum with a reminder that, ultimately, technology is about people. “Technology is the great enabler,” he said, but it needs to “know its place.” He characterized the forum presenters as inspired genealogists and technologists who have both brilliant minds and sensitive hearts.

Here’s a look at the exciting new technology from the forum.
