French Emigrants: They Were Not All Huguenots, or Nobles, or from Alsace-Lorraine — free replay of today's BCG webinar by Anne Morddel, CG, now available for limited time

French Emigrants: They Were Not All Huguenots, or Nobles, or from Alsace-Lorraine — free replay of tonight's BCG webinar by  Anne Morddel, CG, now available for limited time

The recording of today's webinar by the Board for Certification of Genealogists and Anne Morddel, CG, "French Emigrants: They Were Not All Huguenots, or Nobles, or from Alsace-Lorraine" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/BCG for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

One of the great difficulties for people researching their French immigrant ancestors’ roots is that so little is known outside of France about when and why the French left their country. This dearth of knowledge has led many family historians of the 19th century to presume Huguenot, noble émigré or Alsace-Lorraine ancestry for any ancestor with a French name. The supposition became a family legend that then became a research frustration as more recent family historians attempt to prove what was never more than a misguided supposition.

This webinar looks at the many waves of French migration, as well as the three mentioned in the title, from the 17th to the 20th centuries. The historical reasons for when, why and to where they emigrated will provide the key points to bear in mind when conducting research. The bibliography, in English and French, contains not only books and articles concerning French emigration but a list of websites to aid the researcher.

The 24-Hour Genealogy Webinar Marathon concludes - more than 63k registrants!


Our 5th annual 24-hour Genealogy Webinar Marathon was a huge success. More than 63,000 genealogists (63,108 to be exact) from 70 countries registered for the live 24 hour event. The 23 wonderful speakers from 7 countries helped all of us improve our genealogy skills, while even keeping some of our attendees awake for the entire marathon. Wow! :)

You've had so many wonderful things to say about the marathon. Here are just a few of our favorites:

This has been the best 24 hrs. There was so much important information. Each Webinar was better than the last. This was a massive project to accomplish. Congratulations and Thanks to everyone involved job well done.”

“I just wanted to state that I attended some of the 24 hour marathon series yesterday. From the initial email received after registration; the further reminder; the reminder just prior; the click on the link to connect and the immediate connection and excellent presentations, the whole event was a master class of organisation. Congratulations to you and your colleagues for such an inspiring event.”

“Oh, yes, Geoff, there is a physical and mental toll, but I LOVE knowing that I am big-time learning with family historians around the world! This is my fifth marathon and I still don't know how you all do it. I'm in awe, but so, so grateful! Five years later, I still found 11 webinars and am so full of new ideas, inspiration and learning! I also appreciate the ability to go back next week and absorb more! You all rock!!!”

“Excellent marathon-I managed to attend all but 4! I love how personable and knowledgeable the presenters are.  What an incredible gift from MyHeritage to the genealogy community❤️!

I had no idea of the impact that our webinars made on you:

“My 2023 was filled much trauma. The 2023 24 Hour Marathon was one of the few bright spots of the year. I am finally starting to feel better and one reason was the anticipation of the 2024 24 Hour Marathon. Thank you so much from my full heart. This has been so healing.

Another wow, and so humbling. Thank you.

Of the hundreds of hours that we at Legacy Family Tree Webinars, MyHeritage, and the speakers put into this event, we couldn't have been more pleased with the turnout, and with what seemed to be a flawless event.

Despite the fact that their marriages were not legally recognized before 1865, enslaved couples were uniting in “quasi-marital” relationships, and were cohabitating as husband and wife, as evidenced by many extant documents created during and after the end of America’s Civil War. In this presentation, we explore examples of documents that provide evidence of these relationships, and sources for finding them.

Non-Conformism in England and Wales — free replay of today's webinar by Jenny Joyce now available for limited time

Webinar Description

Do you know the difference between a Peculiar Baptist and an Anabaptist? What types of records the Quakers kept? What the Puritans believed? Understanding the background to and the beliefs of the multitude of non-conformist churches can give us an insight into our ancestors’ lives. Learning what records the various groups kept can give us a new lead for our research, or prevent us looking for records that never existed in the first place. This talk will not only tackle those questions, but also give a history of many of the non-conformist churches that existed in England and Wales.

Register for Tuesday's Down Under webinar: Non-Conformism in England and Wales by Jenny Joyce

Do you know the difference between a Peculiar Baptist and an Anabaptist? What types of records the Quakers kept? What the Puritans believed? Understanding the background to and the beliefs of the multitude of non-conformist churches can give us an insight into our ancestors’ lives. Learning what records the various groups kept can give us a new lead for our research, or prevent us looking for records that never existed in the first place. This talk will not only tackle those questions, but also give a history of many of the non-conformist churches that existed in England and Wales.

Webinar Description

The majority of ancestral Scandinavians shared a small number of given names and surnames. Following ancestors without becoming mixed up in the patronymic pot can be a challenge. This webinar will provide guidance for focusing on your ancestor and eliminating other possible family lines. We will answer the most common questions regarding ancestral patronymics: what are they? why are they used? and how do I follow my family and not the neighbors?
