Tech Tuesday - Wonderful World of Webinars

Webinars are plentiful.  The genealogy software you use probably conducts webinars on its website.  Numerous websites you visit or follow probably offer webinars.  Good news - many are free.

How do you find webinars?  Check out GeneaWebinars. According to the website,
"Thanks to Ol’ Myrt of DearMYRTLE who created GeneaWebinars, the [genealogy] community not only has a comprehensive directory of upcoming online genealogy education seminars, but also a way in which presenters and providers of these webinars can advertise their offerings."
Are you wondering how to attend a webinar?  Thomas MacEntee has written a helpful article for Archives.com titled "How to Attend a Genealogy Webinar". His topics include:
  • How webinars work
  • Where to find them
  • Preparing your computer
  • Getting the most from a webinar
  • Using webinars for genealogy society meetings
Have your calendar ready and let the learning begin! Oh, and remember, many of the webinars are available to view for a short period of time after the "live" program.
