52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 11

Week 11 – Technology: makes it possible for genealogy classroom learning to come to you. Webinars are now hosted by many instructors on a variety of family history subjects. Share with us a webinar or series of webinars that you appreciate.

I'm late this week!  I've been out of town....

I have two favorite series of Webinars.  

I use RootsMagic software and the webinars published and distributed freely from their website, both about the software and related topics have been very helpful.  For a nominal fee, the webinars may also be purchased on DVD.

The LegacyFamilyTree Webinars, also produced by a major genealogy software company, have also been instructive on many topics related to genealogy.  Many of these webinars remain free indefinitely, but others are available for a reasonable cost.

Both publishers promote other genealogical products and how to use them. Some of the webinars deal with research and how to solve various research problems.  Even the webinars that deal with their specific software are informative and present new ideas regardless of what software one uses.

The only problem I have is finding time to watch them all!
