To take these in you'll need to register here and then find session descriptions, speaker bios, suggested experience levels and schedule details. Remember EST is three hours later than times in the conference schedule.

In previous years I've enjoyed SCGS streamed sessions. Unfortunately travel this year means I'll miss them.

Comment. Some people organising conferences worry free streaming sessions will take away from conference registrations. SCGS, with the assistance of sponsor Ancestry.com, continues to offer these which says to me that isn't their experience in any substantial way. I suspect RootsTech would be of the same view.
