Wow, it was a great week at RootsTech last week.  There were more than 4,500 attendees, making this the largest genealogical conference in the United States.  There were more than 2,500 visitors to The Family History Library for the Friday night event.  The Library was open late, until midnight, and at 11:00 there were still more than 500 patrons in the Library.
