Update on FamilySearch Webinars

We’ve talked about this before but thought we needed to do an update.

Spring is in the air – which in Alberta means snow for areas just north of Edmonton, and the end of over 40 years of conservative party rule in the provincial legislature.  Our local Family History classes have been suspended for the summer, but family history should continue . . . .  Why not try a free online webinar from FamilySearch?

Go to FamilySearch.org , then go under the search menu and select Wiki.  Enter the search term Online Webinars and you see links to articles from 4 research teams:  Latin America, British Isles, International and Scandinavian, and United States/Canada.  When you follow any of these links look for 3 things:  1.  A list of upcoming webinars, 2.  Information on the new webinar platform in use since February 2015 – now using WebEx, and 3.  Links to handouts and past webinars – what a great resource!
