Thanks for info on all the great free genealogy webinars! I thought you might be interested in knowing that the Utah Genealogical Society has three free webinar series each month. The first is called UGA Genealogy Pro Talk on the first Tuesday of the month, next is the Virtual Chapter webinar on the third Thursday, and the last is the UGA DNA webinar held the fourth Tuesday of each month. Viewers can get info on topics and speakers, and register at UGAgenealogy.org. All webinars are free and open to the public when they are live-streamed, and then are available as archived videos to UGA members thereafter.
