Start the new year off with free genealogy webinars for January. It’s education you need from the comfort of your home. Read further to find out who’s offering free genealogy webinars that will help you break through those brick walls in 2018!
What’s a Webinar?
A webinar is an online, video and/or audio class you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. You need only a computer and a moderately strong internet connection. Many genealogy webinars run for approximately 30 to 60 minutes. If held live, virtual attendees may even have time to ask the presenter questions via the chat mode.
Webinars are typically recorded and able to be viewed at a later time as well.
Where to Go for Free Genealogy Webinars in January
The State Organizations: There are many state level genealogical societies offering free genealogy webinars on a monthly basis. Though non-members typically only have the opportunity to see the webinar live, it is well worth a change in your schedule to view it if you are not a registered member. (See list below of several January webinars from state genealogical societies)
Legacy Family Tree Webinars also offer free genealogy webinars throughout the week. The live webinars are free to the public and remain free for one week. After that time, the archived webinars are available to subscription members only or available as a paid download for non-members. (See list below of upcoming webinar topics from Legacy)
Lastly, the Family History Library in Salt Lake City offers numerous webinars each month. They are all free and offered nearly every day of week!
