Tuesday's Tip: FREE NARA Virtual Genealogy Fair is October 26-27, 2016

This week's Tuesday's Tip is:  Watch the National Archives Virtual Genealogy Fair on 26 and 27 October 2016, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Eastern time) on YouTube.

The description on the NARA Virtual Genealogy Fair says:

"On October 26 & 27, 2016 (Wednesday & Thursday), the National Archives is hosting a two-day, virtual Genealogy Fair via webcast. Viewers have the opportunity to participate with the presenters and other family historians during the live event on YouTube. All of the session videos and handouts will be available from this web page free of charge. You can watch the sessions and download the materials at your convenience. Registration is not required."

The list of times, speakers and topics is at https://www.archives.gov/calendar/genealogy-fair.  Note that this is 10 a.m. Eastern time until 3 p.m. Eastern time.  Please do your own time estimate so you don't miss anything.

You can watch the 26 October (Wednesday) presentations at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXsSQnQgEpI (or below):

The presentations for 27 October (Thursday) will be at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgEVVyAWBTI (or below):

It is not clear to me where the session handouts will be available.  Perhaps they will be on the Genealogy Fair webpage (https://www.archives.gov/calendar/genealogy-fair) after the broadcasts.
