My Sessions at RootsTech 2014 - Thursday, 6 February

I've started looking at the class schedules for each day at and these are the classes that I most want to attend on Thursday, 6 February:

8:30 a.m. - Thursday General Session, Keynote Address -- Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman; and Annalies van den Belt of D.C. Thomson Family History. (Hall E)

10:30 a.m. - Tom Jones: "Can a Complex Research Problem Be Solved Online?" (Ballroom B)

10:30 a.m. - Ryan Heaton:  "GEDCOM X" (Unconferencing Room 1)

1:00 p.m. - Alice Kane: "A Mobile Genealogist: Using Evernote for Genealogy Research" (Ballroom G)

1:00 p.m. - Ron Tanner: "FamilySearch Family Tree: What's New and What's Next" (Hall E)

1:00 p.m. - Tony Hanson:  "Personal Digital Archiving for the Genealogist" (Ballroom B)

2:30 p.m. - Juliana Smith:  "Common Surnames: Finding Your Smiths" (Ballroom C)

2:30 p.m. - Elaine Collins: "Old world, New World: as the Key Resource for Tracing British Ancestry" (Ballroom H)

2:30 p.m. - Jen Baldwin:  "Online Trees: The Root of All Evil?" (Ballroom A)

4:00 p.m. - Randy Hoffman:  "Genealogy In the Cloud" (Hall E)

4:00 p.m. - Pamela Weisberger: "Mergers and Acquisitions: The Business of Expanding Your Family Tree" (Ballroom C)

4:00 p.m. - D. Joshua Taylor:  "Run, Jump and Collecting Coins: Gaming and Family History" (Ballroom D)

I have these classes already starred in my RootsTech 2014 App on my iPhone. 

Of course, there is no guarantee that I will attend any of these presentations (other than the keynote session).  I usually hang out in the Media Center and write a blog post or two every day at RootsTech, and also walk through the Exhibit Hall several times a day asking questions and learning about new resources.  Several of them will be on the Live Streaming, and I may catch those later at home.  But I have good intentions!

Are you attending RootsTech 2014?  If so, which classes do you want to attend?
