“Remember” was the theme of RootsTech 2024, the three-day global online and in-person family celebration conference that took place February 29 through March 2 in Salt Lake City, in which millions of virtual and in-person attendees from around the world participated.

Following are links and highlights where you can learn more about the event.

Family Discovery Day

Family Discovery Day, a RootsTech offering designed specifically for Latter-day Saints, included a video of the late President M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, which was recorded prior to his passing.

In the video, President Ballard said knowing your roots helps you better grasp your identity — and pay a necessary debt of gratitude.“It’s very important for people to seek out and know what they can about those who laid the groundwork for them to have what they have in their lives,” he said.
