Webinar-on-CDs: Google for Genealogists & Sharing Genealogy Electronically - now available for pre-ordering
Due to popular demand, we are now publishing our genealogy webinars to CD. The first two in our webinar-on-CD series are now available to pre-order:
Google for Genealogists, by Thomas MacEntee
Sharing Genealogy Electronically, by Geoff Rasmussen
Viewing a webinar-on-CD is like having your own private genealogy instructor in your home - anytime! Just insert the CD into your computer's CD or DVD drive and enjoy personal training from the industry's finest teachers. The video topics are bookmarked so you can quickly jump from topic to topic or just watch it straight through. You can pause, rewind, or fast-forward at your leisure. Both webinar-on-CDs also include four pages of handouts.
Pre-order pricing is just $9.95 per webinar-on-CD. Order both and save on shipping (one flat rate for as much as you can "stuff" into your online cart). We expect to begin shipping on February 5, 2011.
Google for Genealogists webinar-on-CD, 1 hour 28 minutes
Most genealogists are only using 10% or less of the resources behind Google when it comes to genealogy research. Learn from professional genealogist, Thomas MacEntee, about the other 90% and how these Google components can be leveraged for better search results. Google is more than just a search engine – it is a wealth of information much of which goes unnoticed by the average genealogist. Besides search, Google allows you to access maps, books, journals, abstracts, patents and much more. These components may be what is needed to make advances in your genealogy research.
