Legacy Family Tree Webinars for 2013 All Set

One of my favorite "Continuing Education" venues is the Legacy Family Tree Webinar series (, hosted by Geoff Rasmussen.

There are 43 webinars scheduled for 2013.  You can register for FREE for any or all of them at their website,  After you register, they will send you an email with a link to your reserved webinar, and another one as the webinar time approaches.

There is a long list of previous webinars on the same web page (scroll down!) that can be viewed and purchased; some are free for a short time, others are free for an unlimited time, and many have only short previews but are available on CDROMs for purchase (which includes the syllabus for the presentation.  One of the benefits of attending the webinars "live" is that you can participate in the polls conducted, and you are eligible for one of the prizes awarded by Geoff during the webinar.

Here is a screen shot at the top of the Archived Webinar list:

I try to catch some of these webinars on a regular basis if I cannot be there "live."  Unfortunately, many of these webinars are scheduled on Wednesdays at 11 a.m. Pacific time, which is when I'm usually leaving for a CVGS meeting.

I watched Marian Pierre-Louis' webinar from 16 January on "In the Trenches: Successful On-Site Research" today and enjoyed it, and learned some things.  This webinar, and Lisa Alzo's webinar from 23 January, are available for free viewing until 28 January 2013.

Here is the opening screen from Marian's webinar:

If you cannot attend conferences and seminars, please consider getting your "continuing education" fix by attending these webinars online when they are presented, or view them before they go behind the pay wall.
