2019 Genealogy Webinars

Hard on the heels of the announcement of the 2019 BCG webinar series comes news of other webinars offered by and in cooperation with Legacy Family Tree Webinars. Here's the announcement (the word Canad* does not appear).

MyHeritage webinar series
And for the second year - we will be the host of the exclusive webinar series, MyHeritage Webinars, where we will learn about matching technology, and get insights into old photos, city directories and much more. Watch this blog for the announcement soon.

Down Under series
We are most proud to host the new Down Under series - webinars designed for genealogists in Australia and New Zealand - at 12pm (noon) on Wednesdays. They'll have their very own Webinar Wednesday with convenient timing. See www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/downunder.

FGS series
We've partnered with the Federation of Genealogical Societies to help you prepare for their annual conference to be held August 21-24 in Washington DC. First, learn from conference Chair, Pamela Boyer Sayre, in her free webinar What Would You Do If You Had Five Days in Washington DC? Then in March, we will release a 13-class series to learn about the attendee's repository of interest - The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Library of Congress, or Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Library. This will give conference goers the special knowledge they need to decide which pre-conference research opportunity they want. This bonus webinar series will be available to FGS registrants and webinar subscribers.

International Languages For the first time, we will host live webinars in foreign languages: Swedish, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish. More information to come soon.

Closed Captioning
Every webinar recording will be captioned for the hearing impaired. We really are striving to serve the entire world!

BONUS webinars for subscribers
In addition to the live webinar series, every Friday is "Member Friday" where subscribers will enjoy a bonus pre-recorded webinar! Watch for the schedule of titles soon.
