As a RootsTech 2018 Ambassador, I am happy to introduce you to a special hands-on family history experience for women of faith that will be held during RootsTech on Thursday, March 1, 2018. The workshop is geared toward LDS women, however, all women of faith are invited to participate.
Attendees will be introduced to the basics of family history by passionate and energetic experts. They’ll learn simple, fun ways to incorporate family history into all aspects of their busy lives.
The Light Keepers experience includes an all-day workshop, a beautiful workbook, a catered lunch, a fantastic keynote session, prizes and giveaways, access to the expansive RootsTech Expo Hall, admission to the evening event and the after party—all for just $159.00! There are 250 seats available. (If participants want to attend Light Keepers and RootsTech the cost is $279.00.)
Light Keepers Schedule:
Allison Kimball and Rhonna Farrer are the creators behind the workbook and are the featured presenters for the Light Keepers event.
The workshop experience helps participates learn how to access the power of family history in their lives to fortify their lives and homes; all through stories. It’s designed to help the participate see their family history in new and creative ways. This event is particularly helpful for those who have had the desire to do family history but just didn’t know whereto start and what to do.
The workshop focuses on four areas:
CONNECT … the Why
DISCOVER … the What
STRENGTHEN … the Who
GATHER … the How
The workbook follows these areas and is filled with prompts and space for participants to write down their own personal thoughts as they begin their own journey with family history.
I signed up for Rootstech and Light keepers but didn’t get the facebook group code. Do you have the group name or link?
Esther, I do not have that information, but I have sent out a query on the Ambassador group. I will get back with you when I hear something from them.
Is the program/workbook available to women who are not LDS members?
Is it possible to access online? Have just started researching the steps to start the journey.
Pamela, I do not believe the workbook is available outside of attendees at the conference. I am checking in with those that ran the workshop to find out for sure. If I find a way for you to get one, I will let you know. I wish you the best in your research journey!

I would like to purchase the workbook. I hope it is available.
I was not involved with the 2020 Light Keepers event. Please contact someone from the event directly about a workbook. Good luck!
