As genealogists, we never stop learning and Legacy Family Tree is taking advantage of that while at the same time trying to make our self-isolation more bearable. For the month of April they are generously providing a free genealogy webinar every day - and boy, have they got some quality presenters on the agenda.
There are seven themes for seven days which will rotate weekly, namely:
There seems to be something for everyone regardless of your level of expertise so click here to see the whole program of webinars for the month.
For my part I'm curious about The Five-story Fall: Correlating Indirect and Direct Evidence to Extend the Pedigree presented by Debra Mieszala on 26 April. I also plan to do a couple of the Tech Zone webinars. They are a relatively new concept for Legacy Family Tree. These webinars are short and sharp aimed at making life easier for the genealogist technology-wise.
You can be sure anything on DNA presented by Blaine Bettinger is worth listening to. His webinar titled Reconstructing Your Genetic Family Tree is scheduled for 13 April. As well as being a leading authority on using DNA in family history research, Blaine is a first class presenter and he gets through a lot of material in a short time.
If you have New South Wales ancestors, I recommend Carol Baxter's Polled! Finding your Ancestors in New South Wales Colonial Muster and Census Returns on 23 April. I've always learned something when I've watched Carol's webinars. In my opinion she knows how to share information.
Legacy Family Tree Webinars are usually subscription based. So get over there and take advantage of their temporary largesse. If you know of anyone else who might benefit from the free program of webinars, don't hesitate to share this blog post with them via your favourite social media.
Don't forget to let me know in the Comments box below of any webinars you find particularly useful.
These webinars are a welcome yet educational diversion from all the gloom and doom about the pandemic we're bombarded with on a daily basis. And, of course, you know how I feel about anything that is online and free.
Stay safe, stay indoors if you can during this pandemic and wash your hands frequently.
