Frequently Asked Questions

When is RootsTech Connect?

RootsTech Connect will be live during 25-27 February 2021 at rootstech.org. All of the content will then be available following the live event for at least 12 months.

Why a virtual conference?

That’s a great question. A few reasons, really. First, the live events industry is changing and adapting currently, and that calls for innovation. Hosting this event online is the safest and most responsible action we can take for everyone involved.

Secondly, an online event means that we can truly turn this into a global celebration of family. Imagine how many people will now be able to participate in RootsTech without the barrier of travel or lodging. This is what gets me excited. We are focused on creating a true global event—meaning we’ll have content taught by presenters from all over the world, and many of the classes will be available in multiple languages. We’ll have an even greater number of companies to learn from in our virtual Expo Hall—from all over the world as well.

Is this online event replacing RootsTech in Salt Lake City 2021?

Yes. This virtual conference will replace the planned in-person event that was scheduled for February 3–6, 2021, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Is this really a free event?

Yes! This event is 100 percent free. We won’t ask for a credit card number. In a few months we will have a simple registration form that you can fill out, and we might ask for your mailing address so we can send you some RootsTech swag, but the event will be freely available online. We’d ask that you share this with your friends, family, or colleagues so that we can really expand the reach of the event.

Will classes be available in different languages?

Absolutely. One of our goals for this event is to have more content in more languages. We’re working on developing classes and content taught by people from around the world in a number of languages. More information will be available on the classes and speakers as the event approaches.

Will recordings be available on demand after the live event?

Yes. This event will have a combination of both livestream content and content that will be available on demand. So if you have to step away from the computer for a bit, no worries. All of the content will be available to you to enjoy on your own time.

Aside from classes and the virtual marketplace, what other things can I look forward to?

RootsTech is more than just classes and the virtual marketplace. It’s about celebrating culture and heritage. Throughout the event, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in a number of other activities, such as a homeland cooking demonstration, a yoga session to get the blood flowing, and so much more!

I’m interested in teaching a class or sharing a family history cultural activity. What should I do?

Church Changes LDS Tools + More App and Channel Names

"Latter-day Saints are the Lord’s covenant people; therefore, 'LDS' or 'Latter-day Saint' should not be used to qualify objects such as temples, scriptures, or doctrine that belong to the Lord or His Church and not to Church members," a new article on ChurchofJesusChrist.org states. The Church recently updated the names of apps and channels such as Mormon Messages, LDS Tools, LDS Music, LDS Media Library, and more.

Many of the Church’s mobile apps are being renamed to align with recent direction from Church leaders regarding the naming of Church products.

  • LDS Tools is now Member Tools. This app provides a congregational directory and calendar, missionary referral tools and directions to nearby chapels and temples.

  • LDS Media Library is now Gospel Media on the mobile app as well as online. This app is the Church’s library of all public video, images and music. The media is organized into collections that help users find, use and share media at home, at church and on the go. The mobile app enables Latter-day Saints to create media presentations and download media to present offline. Members can also trim videos, mark favorites, sync presentations across devices and share their presentations with others.

  • Mormon Messages is now Inspirational Messages. These videos usually feature an inspirational story about a Church member or a teaching of a Church leader. They can be found in Gospel Media, in the Gospel Library app and on the Church’s YouTube channel.

  • LDS Music is now Sacred Music. This application offers sheet music in addition to text-only versions of hymns and songs, audio recordings (instrumental and vocal) and indexes for topics, authors and composers. Playlists can also be created and shared.

  • LDS Sing-Along is now Sing-Along Hymns. This app provides beautiful imagery to accompany sacred hymns and songs. Words on the screen and a bouncing ball to indicate which word should be sung make it easier for children to sing along as they learn the music the Church uses to worship at home and at church. Playlists can also be created and shared.

  • The Gospel Library app keeps the same name.

Various other services and mobile apps, such as LDS Seminary and Institute, will simply remove “LDS” from the name.

The terms “LDS” and “Latter-day Saint” should not be used to qualify objects, such as temples, scriptures or doctrine, that belong to the Lord or His Church. Instead of “Latter-day Saint temples,” for example, the appropriate references would be “temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” or “house of the Lord.”

LDS Church updates mobile apps as renaming push continues

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is renaming its mobile apps to align with the faith’s campaign to get rid of “Mormon” and “LDS” as shorthand nicknames for the religion.

The Thursday announcement comes after the Utah-based church in 2018 began moving away from the widely recognized “Mormon” and “LDS” monikers. Church President Russell M. Nelson said the Lord communicated to him the importance of the faith’s full name and that removing it from titles is “a major victory for Satan.”

“LDS Tools” is now “Member Tools” and “Mormon Messages” is “Inspirational Messages” along with several other app changes. Other services and applications will simply remove “LDS” from the name.

The church also said the terms “LDS” and “Latter-day Saint” should not be used to qualify objects such as temples, scriptures or doctrine. “Instead of ‘Latter-day Saint temples,’ for example, the appropriate references would be ‘“temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ or ‘house of the Lord,’" the church said in a news release.

Church leaders have said, however, that they prefer the term “Latter-day Saints” when referring to members.

“Use the full name of the church on first references, with ‘the church,’ ‘church members,’ ‘members of the faith’ preferred on second and later reference[s],” advises the wire service’s online style edition.

However, AP still allows for the use of “Mormons” and “Mormon” when “necessary for space or clarity or in quotations or proper names.”
