We had a Party 🎉

For us, RootsTech is like camp. We get to see all our friends, swap stories, and get creative.

It's just so inspiring for us to reconnect with our Ponga Community and learn more about how our Ponga members and their guests use the software with their photos and stories to reconnect with their families.

For the 2023 Rootstech event, we couldn't be there in the melting snow at the Salt Palace, but we had our virtual booth with chat and events.

Featuring Kathy Stone
