2020 Legacy Family Tree Webinars Series Announced - TechZone added

I received this announcement from Legacy Family Tree and Family Tree Webinars earlier this week:


MyHeritage and are pleased to announce that registration is now open for its 2020 Legacy Family Tree Webinars series, now in its 10th year. Choose from 100 classes from genealogy's leading educators on topics ranging from Australia to England to Spain, from Snagit to Virtual Private Networks, from the Mayflower to the 1939 Register, and from DNA Painter to endogamy.
In addition to the live webinars, the new TechZone–a library of forty brand new tech videos–all 10-minutes-or-less–is now available. New videos will be released every Friday on all sorts of topics: Google, Excel, browser tips, mobile apps, Windows shortcuts, using Evernote, Facebook, chromosome browsers, using and improving your family videos and photos, and so much more. The TechZone is a new membership benefit where webinar members have free, anytime, unlimited access. Watch this video to get a taste of what's available:
BCG webinar series
We are proud to once again host the monthly webinar series for the Board for Certification of Genealogists where we will learn from the likes of Tom Jones, David Ouimette, Warren Bittner, Rebecca Koford, and eight other board-certified genealogists. See the press release here.

And for the third year - we will be the host of the exclusive webinar series, MyHeritage Webinars, where we will learn about the upcoming Ethnicity Estimates, matching technology, chart creation, city directories and much more.
