Legacy Family Tree Webinars wants to do its part to help genealogists across the world who are self-isolating at home right now. While we can’t do your grocery shopping or other practical activities, perhaps a genealogy class each day during the month of April will help as a diversion.
Each day we’ll be unlocking one Legacy Family Tree webinar from the membership library to be available to watch for free. We’ve chosen the classes around a 7-day rotating theme:
- Sundays – Methodology
- Mondays – DNA
- Tuesdays – Ethnic Genealogy
- Wednesdays – Technology
- Thursdays – Around the Globe
- Fridays – Beginners
- Saturdays – TechZone
