Family History Library Webinars

With the new year are you looking to get more involved in learning about your genealogy? Do you want to take some courses? Do you not want to travel in the winter when you don't know when the next snow or ice storm is going to blow through? Are you groaning over Christmas bills and have no money to do so? Don't despair. There's a way around this.

Many places offer distance learning. Some charge money, but it's a lot cheaper than traveling! Some even offer webinars for free. That's right free! And you can listen to them in your own home, curled up in front of the computer in your jammies even. One such group that offers this (FamilySearch) has just done a news release of their webinars for January. They are listed in their news release below. Some of these classes are only offered for people that are at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Ignore those unless you can get there that day- in which case I'm jealous! However, look at the ones marked webinar and you can find a whole lot there. Be aware, the times listed are Mountain time, so if you're on the east coast like me, they are actually two hours later than listed or adjust them to your own time zone so that you don't miss out.

Here's Where They Are Broadcast From
