RootsTech started out with a bang.  The conference will have more than 30,000 attendees with more than 4,000 youth attending on Saturday.  The conference will also be broadcasting to more than 600 locations worldwide.  These locations will hold local family history conferences in conjunction with RootsTech.  It is expected that the total number of individuals that will participate in RootsTech, either directly or through one of the local conferences, will be nearly 150,000.  That makes RootsTech the largest family history conference in the world, and it is right in our back yard.  If you have time on Saturday to head down to the Salt Palace it will be worth the trip.  On Saturday, Neil L Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will be speaking along with Elder Foster and Elder Packer of the Seventy. Studio C will be performing and John Bytheway will be speaking.

Ten years ago when the Morgan School District gave the temporary use of one of its buildings to have a Weber State University  information center in Morgan, no one could foresee the progress the center has made today. Barbara Anderson who has worked at the center from the time of opening, has seen this higher education learning center grow from an information center, to a testing center, to now a place where students can learn by taking classes via video conferencing (IVC).  Through video conferencing students can interact with the course instructor teaching from a distant campus.
