We did it! The 24-hour Genealogy Webinar Marathon was a huge success! 7,781 registered from 68 countries for the event which was taught by 23 different speakers from 9 countries. 24 genealogy classes in 24 hours. Wow! Thanks to all the speakers, to everyone who attended, to hosts Marian Pierre-Louis, Daniel Horowitz, and Geoff Rasmussen; to Legacy Family Tree Webinars, and especially to MyHeritage for sponsoring the entire event.
In addition to everything we learned, we experienced emotions that many of us weren't ready for, or at least I wasn't expecting. Viewers expressed the peace they felt as we came together as a world community–as a world family–during these difficult times. Many were touched very deeply by Diahan Southard's class about how DNA influences our identity. Others shared how they feel they can now overcome painful family relationships after viewing Devin Ashby's "The Science of Family History." We had at least one brick wall solved while on-the-air, but now I have no idea in which class that was. They were each so unique and educational that I feel we are all better for having participated in the event.
We are now working really hard to publish the classes. Watch them again, or for the first time. They will begin to appear throughout this week at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com/24, and each will be free for a week.
Access all 1,100+ classes AND syllabus materials
In addition to the 24 classes, anyone with a webinar membership has complete and anytime-access to all 1,185 classes in the webinar library. Plus, the marathon's 85-page syllabus AND all 4,800+ additional syllabus pages are available with your membership.
Join today, and you'll have immediate access to everything.
Lots of you are wondering when we will do our next 24 hour marathon. Honestly, I hadn't even considered it, and probably won't even think about it until we've caught up on our sleep and have this event's classes published. But it's an interesting idea. Stay tuned.
