MyHeritage and FamilyTreeWebinars.com are pleased to announce that registration is now open for its 2019 Legacy Family Tree Webinars series. Choose from 73 classes from genealogy's leading educators on topics ranging from Australia to New Mexico to France, from OneNote to Google Photos, from the DAR to Forensic Genealogy, and from DNA Painter to Reclaim the Records.
The 2019 series brings the addition of weekly themes. In addition to hosting the MyHeritage and BCG webinars series (to be announced separately), Legacy will now broadcast DNA webinars the first Wednesday of each month, a places/ethnicity topic the 3rd Wednesday of the month, technology topics on the 4th Wednesday and Methodology topics the last Friday of each month. These new themed webinars join the previously announced new Down Under series. There's surely something for everyone!
BCG webinar series
We are proud to once again host the monthly webinar series for the Board for Certification of Genealogists where we will learn from the likes of Claire Bettag, Debra Miezala, Harold Henderson, and nine other board-certified genealogists. See the press release here.
MyHeritage webinar series
And for the second year - we will be the host of the exclusive webinar series, MyHeritage Webinars, where we will learn about matching technology, and get insights into old photos, city directories and much more. Watch this blog for the announcement soon.
Down Under series
We are most proud to host the new Down Under series - webinars designed for genealogists in Australia and New Zealand - at 12pm (noon) on Wednesdays. They'll have their very own Webinar Wednesday with convenient timing. See www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/downunder.
We've partnered with the Federation of Genealogical Societies to help you prepare for their annual conference to be held August 21-24 in Washington DC. First, learn from conference Chair, Pamela Boyer Sayre, in her free webinar What Would You Do If You Had Five Days in Washington DC? Then in March, we will release a 13-class series to learn about the attendee's repository of interest - The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Library of Congress, or Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Library. This will give conference goers the special knowledge they need to decide which pre-conference research opportunity they want. This bonus webinar series will be available to FGS registrants and webinar subscribers.
For the first time, we will host live webinars in foreign languages: Swedish, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish. More information to come soon.
Every webinar recording will be captioned for the hearing impaired. We really are striving to serve the entire world!

In addition to the live webinar series, every Friday is "Member Friday" where subscribers will enjoy a bonus pre-recorded webinar! Watch for the schedule of titles soon.
