In the meantime, you can enjoy watching past RootsTech Conferences by visiting the following website:
At the 2015 RootsTech Conference, Sister Carol McConkie of the General Young Women’s Presidency declared:
“There is no greater work, no more significant way to spend your free time, than learning how to find the names of your ancestors who died without the gospel, taking those names to the temple and teaching others how to do the same thing.”
“Through finding names, taking them to the temple and teaching others to do the same, individuals are able to strengthen their understanding of their true identity, give hope during hard times, and be a powerful source of spiritual protection.” 
Please forward this family history idea of the week to the members of your ward/branch to encourage increased involvement in this great work.
We appreciate all you do.  Enjoy this new week!

All our best,
