Would you love to soak up all the genealogical knowledge and fellowship you can handle—but you don’t have the time or extra income to travel to a family history conference in another city?
We’ve got the perfect opportunity for you: Family Tree University’s Fall 2012 Virtual Genealogy Conference. This weekend event, taking place Sept. 14-16, gives you online access to video classes, live chats with genealogy experts, our conference message board and a swag bag of freebies from Family Tree Shop.
Attend from wherever you have a computer and internet access. Watch the classes and post to the message board whenever you want during the event; chats take place at scheduled times (conference attendees can view the chat transcripts later).
And you can save $50 with our early bird registration special, but only through August 10 (use code FTUVCEARLY ).
Classes, taught by pros including Thomas MacEntee, Rick Crume, Diana Crisman Smith, James M. Beidler, Lisa A. Alzo, Denise Levenick and others, are organized into three tracks:
- Genealogy Technology: includes Power Up Your Web Searches, Smarter Online Census Searching, Tricks for Using FamilySearch.org, and more
- Research Strategies: Secrets to Tracing Female Ancestors, Paperless Pedigrees: Organize Your Genealogy Electronically, Research Logs for the Rest of Us, and more
- Ethnic Research: Mastering German Place Names, Using UK Civil Registrations, Tracing Irish Ancestors in Griffith’s Valuation, and more
Chat topics cover cloud genealogy, source documentation, courthouse records, brick wall problems and more. I always look forward to the chats, tossing around research questions and advice with genealogists from all over the place.
