As we're all looking forward to RootsTech2017, which takes place from 8-11 February, let's talk about going to conferences -- whether in person, or via live-streamed video. How do you decide what sessions to attend, and how do you take what you learned and apply it to your research after the conference is over? Which kind of talks draw your attention, and why? Who are your must-watch speakers?

For information about the RootsTech App, see the Ancestry Insider's post Whether You’re Going to #RootsTech or Not, or view the schedule on your desktop at the app-maker's site. (And a big thanks to Randy Seaver's post RootsTech 2017 Live Streaming Schedule on Geneamusings for the link to the live-streaming schedule!)

The chat will occur in The Conference Room all week long. Be sure to register yourself to get an alert each week.

If you have any ideas for future topics, post them as answers to Weekly genealogy chat topics - now a week long event! and they might be used in an upcoming week!
