RootsTech 2012 starts this week! Be sure to follow of all the Official RootsTech Bloggers for their take on the conference and for insider information. Meet a few more of the bloggers below.
The origins of The Ancestry Insider are shrouded in mystery and intrigue, but he is rumored to have started researching genealogies inside the womb. The Ancestry Insider (as opposed to his writer), is an egomaniac who enjoys nothing better than seeing his own name in print. “I write because I want something worth reading,” he often reminds us. The Insider primarily admires himself, although he bears some small admiration to those who admire him. If he could do one thing he’s never done before, he would like to fly to the International Space Station to see a total eclipse of the sun. With Carly Simon. Again.

Myrt – DearMYRTLE’s Genealogy Blog
Myrt is the writer and creator behind DearMYRTLE’s Genealogy Blog. She got started with genealogy when she was hit by a dump truck and was laid up for a year with nothing better to do than begin to type up my parents’ compiled genealogies in an early DOS version of PAF. The first time she discovered an ancestor’s original will, she was hooked and the journey began! Her favorite thing about blogging is interactivity with her DearREADERS that keeps the conversation going. Myrt says that the best word to describe her is “loving” and when she’s not doing genealogy, she enjoys quilting and grandparenting. The farthest she has traveled in the name of genealogy research is a three-week trip to Germany to research on the places where records are not yet digitized or even on microfilm.

Lorine McGinnis Schulze – Olive Tree Genealogy
Lorine is the Canadian writer and creator behind Olive Tree Genealogy and says her favorite thing about blogging is the interactions with her readers. She got started with genealogy to honor her father’s wish to know more about his Irish roots. Her favorite tech tools to use for genealogy is her iPhone and iPad because they allow her to be aware of what’s going on and to research at all times. Lorine says the best word that describes her is “creative” and when she’s not doing genealogy, she loves to cook. If she had a million dollars, she would buy a condo in Salt Lake City so that she could live there half the year and research every day. Read Lorine’s full bio at rootstech.org/bloggers.
