There was an article in the Deseret News, Salt Lake City, Ut paper on Friday, February 7th that talked about the Rootstech conference and the various website that are available for family history search. It was also noted that would be free to LDS Church members, is this really correct? If so, when will this be available? Thank you. Carol Kalar
