Friday RootsTech

Joshua D Taylor spoke first, he spoke about the future of FindMyPast, and shared his cheese story: As a child he would steal cheese and the cheese grater from the kitchen, as he researched his family he discovered that an ancestor got thrown in jail for stealing seven pieces of cheese. Genes run deep apparently. FindMyPast has three goals, Data, Accessibility, and partnerships. Laura Bush (Former first lady) talked about her family, experience in the white house, and 9-11, followed by her daughter Jenna Hager for a Q&A session. Her keynote was one of my favorite. Friday night there was  a wonderful cultural event followed by the passport drawing. The innovators showdown happened at 10:30 in the morning. The winners are as follows:

1st: StoryWorth
2nd: Planet
3rd: GenMarketplace
4th: Lucid press
Peoples Choice was also StoryWorth
