Tuesday Before RootsTech~The Fun Begins!

As genealogists from all over the world began descending on Salt Lake City for the start of RootsTech 2017 the fun was also beginning for those of us who had already arrived.

We took over the restaurant uniting with old friends and making new ones!
Thanks to Pat Richley-Erickson for planning the get together.

RootsTech Ambassadors received a tour of the new Discovery Center recently opened on the first floor of the Family History Center.
