The highlight of this morning's opening session at RootsTech 2017 was the keynote session with the Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott.

Drew and Jonathan Scott were born in Vancouver, BC and grew up just outside the city on a ranch. Their mom is from Scarborough, Ontario and their dad is from Scotland. These guys are very proud of their Scottish heritage and it shows.

Family is important to the Scott brothers and this carries over to their television show, Property Brothers. One of Jon's jobs is to go through the items belonging to the families. He'll often use old documents, photos and mementos to decorate the homes. Both brothers agree a home is not a home unless there are family history photos and memorabilia displayed.

I was part of a group of geneabloggers and media who got to interview Drew and Jon here at RootsTech 2017. They are friendly, personable and charming. I can't wait to see what other ventures these guys have coming in the future.
