Learn Legacy - 4 tools to help you make the most of Legacy Family Tree in 2012
Ring in the New Year with Some Genealogy Goals

Digital Books and Sites - free webinar this Wednesday, January 4 by James Tanner

James-100Join us this Wednesday, January 4 for a fantastic webinar (free) presented by James Tanner, Digital Books and Sites for Genealogists. You will learn how to take advantage of the online explosion of digitized books for genealogy.

James will teach about sources for digitized books including the Internet Archive, Google Books, WorldCat, Library of Congress, and More. Tens of thousands of these digitized books are local and family histories, some of which have had limited or no distribution previously. There are sites, such as the Family History Archive that have thousands of free genealogy-related books and are virtually unknown. Other well-known sites like Google Books contain a wealth of past issues of prominent genealogical publications such as the Ancestry Magazine and the Journal of American Ancestry.

The live webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, January 4, 2012 at 2PM Eastern U.S., so register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day.
