Writing-Related Sessions at RootsTech 2015

The RootsTech 2015 Conference will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, February 12-14, 2015.  The early registration deadline ends today, so if you haven’t registered yet, head over and do so to save some $$$.

Since one of my passions is writing, I always try to compile a list of writing-related sessions at the major genealogy conferences.  So here’s the list for RootsTech 2015, along with the topics related to preservation, since these topics sometimes go hand-in-hand.  The full schedule can be viewed here.  If you are attending the 2015 FGS Conference in conjunction with RootsTech, you might also want to review my post Writing-Related Sessions at the 2015 FGS Conference.
