Build Your Genealogy Skills From Home at Our Virtual Conference

By Diane Haddad

We’ve been keeping something up our sleeves for the end of the summer, but it’s time to let the cat out, at least a little bit.

We’re planning our Family Tree University Summer 2011 Virtual Conference to give you an intensive dose of genealogy education without leaving home (or the library, or your sister’s house, or the table at the coffee shop where you’ve parked your laptop).

The Virtual Conference is an online workshop from Friday, Aug. 19, to Sunday, Aug. 21, 2011. Attendees get an all-access pass to view 15 pre-recorded video classes and participate in live chats. You can join in every day or as your weekend schedule allows.

Classes are organized into three tracks:

  • genealogy technology
  • research strategies
  • ethnic research

A detailed list of classes and instructors is coming soon.

You’ll be able to download classes to watch again later or access ones you’ve missed, and you’ll get a swag bag of Family Tree Shop goodies.

Stop by Family Tree University for more Virtual Conference details and our early bird discount code on tuition (good until July 15).
