RootsTech 2024 is over and we were thrilled to meet our members as well as genealogists just discovering Geneanet!

RootsTech is an annual convention organized by Geneanet partner FamilySearch in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is the largest genealogy gathering worldwide. Geneanet has attended for ten years and this year, we were kept busy at our booth greeting family historians, some who have been Geneanet members for years, others who were just curious to find out more about us. In several cases, we helped attendees break through brick walls and matched American immigrant ancestors to European trees in the old country. We even helped a few visitors import GEDCOM files of their trees to get started!

We always like speaking with visitors about genealogy, here at RootsTech, recently at shows in the Netherlands and Sweden, and of course every year in Paris at the Salon de Généalogie in the Mairie of the 15th arrondissement.

Here are some photos from our three days:

RootsTech is presentations, classes, booths, events, and thousands of genealogists! This photo was taken as we were preparing our booth before the opening
We are always interested in talking genealogy!
Answering a visitor’s questions about our collections, our blog, tree matching…

I found my ancestors tree already on gene net but I need to modify/correct it & I would then like to add it under me how do I do that

Answer from Geneanet: You could add each person to your tree, then use our Hints feature to import birth and death places and dates from the other tree. Or, you could send a message to the tree owner and ask if they would be willing to export a branch of their tree to a GEDCOM file which you could import into your tree.

I have been trying to find death records of my great-great grandfather ! He lived in Mercogliano, in Compania, Italy. Michele Matarazzo was his name. Thanks, Linda
