Online Webinars from the Family History Library

“Have you ever wanted to attend a class at the Family History Library but you don’t live in Salt Lake City?  The Family History Library has begun offering online webinars that can be viewed from the comfort of your home. All that is required is a computer with speakers and an internet connection.” (from FamilySearch Wiki)

How do you find them?  How do you connect to them? And better yet, many of them have handouts you can download!

Step 1:  Go to the wiki at FamilySearch.org (under menu Search)

Step 2:  Use search term Webinars

Step 3: Select one of the 4 choices!  Each page shows you webinars that are planned in the future, gives access to previous webinars, and access to handouts.

Note:  International means anyway in the world other than Latin America, British Isles, United States and Canada – I was interested to see some South Africa webinars in the International section.

Step 4:  When you are on the page for the region you are interested in, go to the top of the screen and click on Watch – so you get an email notifying you if the page changes! (have to be signed in for this to work!)

Here are some sample images:
