Rootstech 2016 - A Quick Overview II

Rootstech 2016 - A Quick Overview - part 2 of 4

Just realized I cut off the end of the Puzzilla note, so here it is again. 

Puzzilla (
The Puzzilla Descendants Viewer is a combination of free basic services plus subscription premium services that help researchers see descendants in FamilyTree using compact symbols that reveal patterns of incomplete research and other work in collateral-lines. Names and details appear as you move the pointer over the symbols. Premium Services, available by subscription, provide hints, sources, possible duplicates, incomplete ordinances, search and other functions to help evaluate the quality of the research in the tree and add evidence to make it stronger.

The Puzzilla name refers to finding and assembling pieces of a puzzle to complete the whole picture, the essence of the genealogical research process.
Cost: free, plus premium services $39.95 annual

Forever (
Forever offers you one home for all your stories and special moments. It makes it incredibly easy to store, organize, share and print your family photos for generations. Know they will always be safe and sound thanks to the Forever Guarantee.
Cost: starts at $5 per month for 10GB storage (about 2,500 photos)

E-Z Photo Scan (
Photo and slide scanning service. Purchase scanners, service, or rent a scanner for 3 to 7 days. 

Shotbox (
A portable photo studio that provides backdrops and great lighting for family history artifacts, online selling, etc. 

TapGenes (
TapGenes helps you crowdsource your family's health information, helping you understand the thread that ties your family's health together. 

Not just physical traits and natural abilities, but valuable health information to preserve for future generations. TapGenes offers you the convenience of keeping all your family health history in one safe and secure place.

In our digital age, we think paper seems so antiquated. So we’ve excelled at creating an easy-to-understand Family Health Tree where all that ‘runs in your family’ is recorded.
Cost: free for basic account, future premium benefits.

Studio by Legacy Republic (
Studio by Legacy Republic will be available exclusively through qualified Legacy Makers - our consultants who help their communities digitize and preserve their photo and video memories for generations to come.

We are on a mission to help 90 million families preserve and share their memories. With an estimated 800 million photo albums and scrapbooks that need to be digitized, this is a $56 billion problem and a unique opportunity to build a meaningful business.

3D Laser scanning and self-adjusting LED lights, high resolution digital images, true to life clarity, powered by an iPhone, it can be set it up anywhere.

Based on the host party model, think Pampered Chef, this device cannot be purchased directly.
