The world's largest family history conference.
Our team was thrilled to participate in the 2022 RootsTech Connect where our classes, demonstrations, and lively conversation shared the joy of stories to connect us to each other, our families, and our ancestors.

We've got you covered. Every month we have a dozen or more sessions available 1:1 or in groups to ask questions and share ideas. Just grab a session on the calendar and lets talk about it live.
We'll follow-up to send you a Zoom link and calendar event so all you do is show up! See you then 👋 .
From RootsTech 2022, Victoria MacGregor presents how to use Ponga to present and share your family tree within your family. From her description "I am going to show you how to create an online family tree using a handful of programs that will give you a permanent place to track, attach sources and memories, and share with others in a format that is easy to create and understand, secure and private."
Ponga had an exciting series of live and recorded programs scheduled during Rootstech. To learn more about future events, visit us at ⮕ ponga.com/events Ponga lets you organize your pictures quickly and easily so that you can use them to privately share stories with family and friends. With Ponga, you can use pictures to capture research, crowdsource memories, and curate your family legacy for future generations.
When we research genealogy, we are filling out our family trees with facts like births, marriages, and locations. This important work is even more exciting when you have old photographs of ancestors to explore at the same time. At Ponga, we started with the latest technologies to organize photographs by the faces of the people in each photo. We then created a way to add stories and memories.Powerful zoom features let you get into details, add comments with a few words, or a story in your own voice, drop in a snapshot, or paste a link to embed a home movie or oral history interview. Rich with stories and memories, your pictures become platters that can be privately shared, collecting anecdotes and revealing details. The connective tissue of these stories engages generations young and old with the family they share.
The pandemic has made remote video communications with Zoom and other tools as ordinary as a touch-tone phone. This course will leverage that experience to describe a new way to connect elders with the younger generation through photographs using storytelling over Zoom. We’ll describe how to use Ponga as the basis of the storytelling so that stories, and the experience of sharing them, can be captured for future generations. We’ll discuss variables that can be adjusted depending on the cognitive and technical abilities of children, parents, and grandparents.
Ponga lets you digitally archive the files, organize the images, & crowdsource the stories — even as the metadata is protected
If you're joining in on the #52Ancestors campaign to focus on an individual ancestor each week of the year, then we've got a great way to leverage that genealogy work in your collection of family photos.
