How some in the genealogy industry are reacting to RootsTech's expansion to London

By Trent Toone, Deseret News


When David Nicholson and Hannah Morden-Nicholson first learned that RootsTech was coming to London, the husband-wife co-founders of LivingDNA.com, based just outside of England's capital city, were more than thrilled.

"It just made sense," Hannah said. "This is the next step for RootsTech. Let's unite the U.S. and the U.K. and the European offering. We were like, great, bring it on."

The Nicholsons' reaction is typical of most in the global genealogy/family history industry.

Another collective cheer went up at the ninth annual RootsTech family history conference last week when FamilySearchInternational announced that registration had opened for RootsTech London.

The first international version of RootsTech is scheduled to take place Oct. 24-26 at the ExCel London.
