Just a heads-up that this is the last week to register for our Spring 2012 Virtual Conference sponsored by Flip-Pal mobile scanner. The conference is this weekend, March 9-11 (which is also time change weekend, by the way).

Wondering what this Virtual Conference thing is? I’ll tell you: It’s an opportunity to improve your genealogy skills and network with other researchers while hanging out at home in your pajamas (or at the coffee shop, let’s hope in your regular clothes).

You’ll log in anytime during the weekend to watch video classes, participate in live chats, visit our virtual exhibit hall and pick up your swag bag.

We’ve got 15 video classes to choose from. Some of them are:

  • Using Steve Morse’s One-Step Site to Get Ready for the 1940 Census with Thomas MacEntee
  • Using Your iPad for Genealogy with Nancy Hendrickson
  • What’s in a Civil War Pension File? with Diana Crisman Smith
  • Using Guardianship Records in Genealogical Research with Marian Pierre-Louis
  • Reconstruction 101 for African-Americans with Tim Pinnick
  • Strategies for Finding English Ancestral Origins with J. H. “Jay” Fonkert

And chat topics include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Tech Talk: Ask Your Technology-Related Questions with Thomas MacEntee
  • Using Military Records with Diana Crisman Smith
  • All About House Histories with Marian Pierre-Louis
  • “Who Do You Think You Are?” Virtual Viewing Party with Kerry Scott

You’ll find the full program listing all the classes and chats at Family Tree University. Hope to “see” you there!

  1. Hi, Sue,
    Yes, viewing the classes is at your convenience. After you register for the Virtual Conference, you can log in to watch any class at any time over the weekend. You also can download videos for later viewing.

    The chats do take place at scheduled times because they’re live. There’s also a conference message board that you can participate in at any time throughout the weekend.

    The main conference page at http://www.familytreeuniversity.com/virtual-conference should have the "how it works" information you’re looking for (scroll to below the "meet the instructors" section), but let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
