Every year, the largest family history conference in the world, RootsTech, takes place in Salt Lake City. One of the highlights of the conference is Family Discovery Day. Held on Saturday, February 11, 2017, Family Discovery Day is organized to help LDS members find joy in family history and celebrate their heritage.
Luckily, you don’t have to attend in person to enjoy Family Discovery Day! Many exciting portions will be streamed live online for free. This year, President Russell M. Nelson and his wife, Sister Wendy Watson Nelson, will give the keynote address. The live stream for the Nelsons will begin at 1 pm MST on the homepage of LDS.org.
Other live presentations include a 1-hour discussion on the blessings of the temple in conjunction with family history from Sheri Dew, Vai Sikahema, and Kalani Sitake. Popular public speaker Hank Smith will also be giving an address. Learn more about the live streaming options here.
