01:11:09 Karen Trearchis: I downloaded the handout, then you can choose to send by email or what I did on my Mac, I downloaded it and you can choose where you want it to go. I saved to notes and it went immediately into iCloud.

NOTE: MacKiev’s Family Tree Maker booth was amazing. Cousin Russ had his own part of the booth – the HELP BAR.

01:18:36 RandySeaver: CeCe is very thoughtful – you were lucky, True, and good!
01:19:39 Doris Haskell: What a special moment in life! Good for you!
01:20:57 Betty-Lu Burton: The theme for Living DNA was we are all more a like then different
01:22:06 Robbin Smith: Russ, the link worked for me

LegacyTree Genealogists
01:55:43 Cousin Russ: https://www.legacytree.com/
01:55:48 Shelley Murphy: They are hiring!

01:56:25 True Lewis: Charge it to my MIND and not my HEART! if I forgot anyone, I didn’t mean to. Rootstech has me still tired.
01:57:47 RandySeaver: I got to meet Doris Haskell in person too!
01:57:50 Shelley Murphy: oh I agree True, I am exhausted…and I am at work now. The body will catch up…
01:58:44 True Lewis: I’m chilling the rest of the week. lol. I got scatterbrains.

DNAQuest
01:58:48 Cousin Russ: https://dnaquest.org/
02:00:37 Shelley Murphy: folks were in there crying, they got emotional. Bernice is excellent
02:00:42 RandySeaver: I really enjoyed meeting Roberta Estes, Marian Pieree-Louis, Dave Robison, Marian Wood and others for the first time
02:02:17 RandySeaver: Roberta Estes blogpost with photos of MyHeritage screens during the MyHeritage lunch is at https://dna-explained.com/2018/03/02/day-2-rootstech-vendors-visits-and-myheritage-is-smokin-hot/
02:02:22 True Lewis: People need to include the Emotional side and look at the perspectives. This is gonna be a big deal in DNA.
02:04:21 Susan Howard: Lucky you Dave!
02:04:50 Shelley Murphy: Thats really cool Dave!
02:05:25 True Lewis: Love it DAVE! that’s how I felt about meeting you Finally!
02:06:18 Shelley Murphy: With all the vendors linked to DNA, where do you all see this going in the future? Is it really just family connections or more?
02:06:53 AnnaMatthews: It’s off the RootsTech topic, but for anyone in the NY area, the New York branch of NARA is having a NY genealogy research series, the second Tuesday of March, April, May and June. More info here: https://www.archives.gov/nyc/public/workshops
02:07:53 Karen Trearchis: Do you have to be LDS? If we have a tree on familysearch, does that count? [MYRT: No.]
02:08:11 Valerie Lisk: you have to be an LDS member to synch Familysearch with MyHeritage?
02:08:13 True Lewis: THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!
02:08:25 Shelley Murphy: It is beautiful
02:08:27 True Lewis: all the way from Norway!
02:08:41 Karen Trearchis: thanks Val
02:09:12 Maria Tegtmeier: She is wonderful – had a great conversation with her
02:09:36 Valerie Lisk: Sorry Karen. That was a question.
02:09:47 RandySeaver: Shelley, I think the BIG collaborative FamilySearch Family Tree is the winner. Findmypast and MyHeritage will partner with them, as will RootsFinder. FSFT is the biggest tree (over 900 million profiles) and will last a long time. All people will need to do is enter themselves and parents and grandparents and should be able to hook into the tree and receive DNA matches from the DNA matches.
02:09:58 True Lewis: Melissa is so SWEET for that! What a Rootstech! xoxo’s for that.

02:13:03 RandySeaver: Valerie Lisk – at the present time, yes you have to be an LDS member to sync with MyHeritage. And it’s not a sync like RootsMafic or Legacy has – it’s download 8 generations of ancestors and 3 generations of descendants from FSFT to a NEW MyHeritage tree, which will generate MyHeritage Hints which can be added back into FSFT.
02:13:08 Shelley Murphy: I think you are right RandySeaver. RT was heavy with DNA vendors.
