Legacy Sponsors Free Webinar on Genealogy Every Day in April

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

The entire list of webinars can be found at the link below.
