I have attended a couple of free Webinars lately, the most recent this afternoon - Social Networking - New Horizons for Genealogists by Thomas MacIntee. It was part of the Southern California Genealogy Society Jamboree Extension Series. You can find more info and a list of upcoming webinars at http://www.scgsgenealogy.com/JamboreeExtensionSeries2011.htm It's well worth the effort to check them out. It's a new way of learning about genealogy from the experts and it's free!
There are other free webinars out there. To learn about them, subscribe to a variety of genealogy newsletters or follow some genealogy blogs as they will talk about them. Google "free genealogy webinars" and you will find a few links. Most of the them use GoToWebinar technology so it's a good opportunity to try out the software. A lot of genealogy societies will be using it soon - maybe even the one you belong to.
I'm really happy that I am able to take advantage of the technology available today. It certainly makes researching genealogy more accessable from home and adds a certain amount of "fun factor" too.
Until next time, Happy Researching!
