People to meet at RootsTech

You never know who you are going to meet at RootsTech. Come this February and see who you meet.

I saw cousins, instructors, new and old friends at RootsTech 2019.

The guy on the right was sitting by me in a session of some friends. He suggested we check to see if we are related. And we are 9th cousins!!

Do this at every session and of course take selfies when you find a cousin!

The lady on the left attended  my session and was a 9th cousin as well.

This lady  was also in my session and she and I are 7th cousins!! She is from Louisiana - the Acadians who went south for the winter and stayed!!
