Join MyHeritage for the Second Annual 24-Hour Genealogy Webinar Marathon (April 8-9)

I received this information from MyHeritage today:

Last year, MyHeritage teamed up with Legacy Family Tree Webinars to make history: we hosted the first-ever 24-hour genealogy webinar marathon. The event, conceived toward the beginning of the pandemic-related shutdowns worldwide, was meant to provide a fully online learning experience bringing together genealogists from all across the globe to hear the latest news, ideas, and advice from the world’s top experts. 

It was such a success that we’re doing it again: on April 8–9, 2021, we’ll be hosting the second annual 24-hour genealogy webinar marathon!

Just like last year, the entire event is free and open to all. You can pop in for just one or a few of the lectures that most interest you, or challenge yourself to stay tuned in to the entire event. Live Q&As will take place during the lectures and there will be door prizes available as well.

The Lectures

This year’s offerings are fascinating and varied and cover a wide range of topics in genealogy, family history research, and DNA. From genetic genealogy to building your own YouTube channel to share family videos, from Cherokee heritage to African American ancestors migrating to Canada, there is truly something for everyone — in every time zone — during this year’s marathon!

Below you’ll find all 26 lectures listed by hour according to EDT. You can use this time zone converter to find out the hour in your local time zone. Click the title of the lecture to see more details and register for each one.

Can’t Join It Live? You Can Catch Up Later

All the lectures will be available for free viewing on the Legacy Family Tree Webinars website for one week after the event. Beyond that, you can watch them anytime with a webinar membership to — along with all of last year’s classes and many, many other excellent webinars.

Challenge yourself and give your genealogy know-how a 24-hour charge… or just join us for some valuable genealogy content whenever is most convenient for you. Either way, we can’t wait to see you there!
