Roots Tech is a four-day event dedicated to celebrating family, discovering family histories, and connecting the living to their ancestors and each other. At this year’s 10th anniversary, Vito introduced his Treasured platform and its flagship product, Treasure World.

Co-founded by Vito and Nikita Varabei in 2017, Treasured is in the business of making memories last forever.

The museum is a place to preserve stories and consolidate their genealogy for future generations to explore.”
