RootsTech 2015 - One final note

As I was visiting the Expo Hall I noticed that there was a lot of good energy. I mentioned before that there were a lot more people at this conference than last year. Most of the the bigger booths were also similar to what was there last year.

The Ancestry booth had small sessions to discuss different parts of their website. They even had benches for people to sit on and watch the presentations.

The MyHeritage booth had a similar setup with chairs instead of benches. Their presence was felt throughout the conference. I noticed that several of the bloggers I follow are sponsored by MyHeritage and all of the lanyards with the conference tags had the MyHeritage logo on them.

FindMyPast also had presentations, I noticed that their presenters all had an English accent. I know the least about this organization but there presence at the conference was bolstered by Joshua Taylor. Josh is the president of the FGS and Business Development Manager for FindMyPast. He may be most recognized for his appearances on Who Do You Think You Are and the Genealogy Roadshow.
