My thanks to reader Jacquie Schattner for creating this list of questions!!
Okay, here are my answers.
1. Yes. I went for the first time in 2015, because I won a contest through Randy's blog, and I have been to the last four, 2017–2020.
2. I try to attend as many sessions as possible, because I want to get the most out of this kind of educational opportunity. I usually make a pass through the exhibitor hall once or twice.
3. My favorite speaker from all the RootsTechs I have attended is probably Myko Clelland of FindMyPast. I have attended several of his sessions over the years. I really enjoy his presentation style.
4. I have spoken with Blaine Bettinger, Thomas MacEntee, and Judy Russell.
5. I learned invaluable information about FamilySearch's Freedmen's Bureau online records collection in 2017 when I attended Ken Nelson's talk about how the collection was assessed, digitized, and indexed. Because I teach about the Freedmen's Bureau records myself, learning this background information helped me understand the collection better and therefore teach about it better.
6. My all-time favorite vendor experience at RootsTech was in 2015, when E-Z Photo allowed attendees to scan as many photos as they wanted on very cool Kodak scanners (which then became available in many Family History Centers). I was able to scan about 350 photos in half an hour, two sided, at high resolution, and 500 total before the end of the conference.
8. I didn't visit the Family History Library this year, but I have during my previous RootsTech trips. I always found something related to my research.
9. My favorite Salt Lake City experience not related to genealogy was when I was able to attend concerts by the Utah Symphony, which I did twice.
10. I had a very pleasant surprise this year, when by pure chance I met someone who is helping coordinate a genealogy society for research in India and the Indian diaspora. I am still working on trying to find more information about my stepsons' grandfather's family (he was from Punjab). The group had a meeting on Saturday evening this year, which I was able to attend. I'm optimistic that this will help a lot of people learn more about their families.
