Board for Certification of Genealogists and Legacy Family Tree Webinars Form Webinar Partnership

I received this press release from the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) today:

The Board for Certification of Genealogists and Legacy Family Tree Webinars are excited to announce a new partnership. Legacy, host of the webinar series at, will now also serve as host, producer, and publisher for future BCG webinars. This arrangement will produce and promote high-quality education in genealogy standards and methodologies by one of the leading creators of genealogy webinars.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars is a leader in the field of webinar production and management. BCG is excited to bring this level of technical quality and experience to its webinar series, which offers educational opportunities on topics of certification, genealogy standards, and methodologies.

Held on the third Tuesday of the month when scheduled, BCG webinars are presented to educate and raise awareness of genealogy standards. Registration for live webinars will be available at and at Registration is free and is open to the public.

Recordings of BCG’s live webinars are available at both and at Some are free for a limited time after the live event, while others are available with an annual or monthly membership to Legacy Family Tree Webinars.

“We are very excited about our new partnership with Legacy Family Tree Webinars, whose technical expertise in genealogy webinar production and management is second to none,” said BCG President Jeanne Larzalere Bloom. “This collaboration allows BCG to focus on its mission of promoting attainable, uniform standards of competence and ethics among genealogical practitioners.”

Geoff Rasmussen, founder and host of the Legacy webinar series, said, “BCG and Legacy webinars is the perfect partnership––where high tech and high quality education meet. The entire genealogy industry will benefit.”

Legacy Family Tree Webinars ( and Legacy Family Tree software ( are part of Millennia Corporation, founded in 1984 and headquartered in Surprise, Arizona.
