Webinars -- a great genealogical resource!



The start of a new year is a great opportunity to consider what genealogical “education” opportunities you will take advantage of!

One form of opportunity which is becoming more prevalent are webinars.  I was reminded of this with an announcement from the North Carolina Genealogical Society (NCGS) that they are launching a new webinar series.

NCGS webinar online 18-20 January! The North Carolina Genealogical Society announces its first full webinar, Tarheels in the Family Tree by Helen F. M. Leary, CG Emeritus, FASG, FNGS. will be released on the NCGS website FREE to all from 18 to 20 January 2013. After 20 January the webinar will be available, without cost to members, in the “members only” section of the NCGS website: www.ncgenealogy.org. CD versions of the webinar will be available in the NCGS online bookstore at that website.

This reminded me that there are many societies which are producing webinars some of which are free to members and/or available for a charge to the public and/or freely available to anyone. Do check the particulars for each webinar purveyor.

Some resources for upcoming webinars you might check out:

And, know that many webinar presentations are archived both at the above-mentioned websites and also at:

If you want to be able to expand your genealogical knowledge and either can’t or won’t be able to do so by leaving your house, then I definitely recommend that you stay home and/or in your jammies and catch some of the great genealogical programming to be found on the internet!


Have you recently watched a webinar?  Which one? Name one thing you learned?

Is there a particular webinar or webinar provider that you would like to recommend to the genealogical community?
