I’ve enjoyed the classes and interaction during previous Family Tree University virtual genealogy conferences—not to mention that I can “attend” from my desk chair at work, or the sofa at home.
I can’t wait for the next one, taking place Sept. 13-15 on a computer near you.
The Fall 2013 Family Tree University Virtual Genealogy Conference brings together video classes from some of the most recognizable names in genealogy—including Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems, D. Joshua Taylor of “Who Do You Think You Are?” and TV’s upcoming “Genealogy Roadshow,” and Judy G. Russell of the Legal Genealogist blog—with lively participant interaction via chats and a message board.
The early-bird registration deadline sure snuck up: Enter code FALLVCEARLY to save $50 on your conference registration, but the code is good only through Friday, Aug. 9.
Here’s the list of video classes offered in three tracks. For descriptions, chat schedule and more Virtual Genealogy Conference information, see Family Tree University.
