In order to watch the webinars live, and be able to make comments and win prizes, you need to register.  They are FREE to attend live, and to watch for about one week after the live presentation.  You can obtain a yearly subscription to watch any webinar in the collection at any time you want.  There are usually handouts for each webinar for subscribers.

This is an excellent, and FREE, way to advance your genealogy education.

Here's a test - who can identify all of the speakers in the photo collage?  I can identify all but 11 of them.  Don't look at the registration page before you answer this!

I  look forward to hearing all of them, most on my own schedule.  I recently subscribed for the yearly subscription for $49.95 (retail).
