RootsTech held in Salt Lake City, Utah, is the largest family history event in the world. This year RootsTech celebrated its 10-year anniversary on February 27-29. There were over 14,000 paid registrants from all 50 U.S. states and many countries around the world. There were more than 300 presentations on a wide variety of genealogy topics that attendees could select from. The exhibit hall was huge with more than 150 vendors displaying their products and services.
Again, this year, ArkivDigital was an exhibitor. Kathy Meade, ArkivDigital’s North American representative gave a lecture, “Getting to know ArkivDigital for Swedish Research” on Thursday and also a second presentation in the demo theater in the vendor hall on Friday.

Each day, there were a stream of visitors stopping by our booth requesting to learn more about our services and Swedish genealogy. Many sought assistance in discovering where in Sweden their ancestor came from, translation help on records as well as questions on how to search within ArkivDigital.

We received so many positive comments about our index BiS (Population of Sweden) 1840 -1947, the name searchable index of household/congregation records between 1840 and 1947, and how easy it is to search and find ancestors with a couple of clicks. Click here to read more about this index.
We wish to thank all our customers who stopped by the booth to say hello and told us how appreciative they are of ArkivDigital and how they love the new features within ArkivDigital.
