You will learn how to trace your ancestors from the world's top genealogists and educators. From planning your research to DNA, from eBooks, German calendars and the FAN club, to Australia, Poland and Ireland, to the First Kansas/US Colored Troops 79th Regiment, there's something for everyone... in every time zone. And thanks to FamilyTreeWebinars.com and MyHeritage, the entire event is free! Pop in for a session or two, or stick around for the full 24 hours — it's completely up to you. There will even be time for Q&A and door prizes.
Actually, it's 25 hours
Stick around for an extra hour at the very end as we feature Elizabeth Shown Mills and her class, "Elusive Ancestors: Never Too Poor To Trace". This is part of this year's members-only webinar series, "The Best of Elizabeth Shown Mills: Genealogy Problem Solving". All classes in this series require a webinar membership to attend EXCEPT for this one. If you've been thinking about becoming a webinar member to have access to the entire series, come see what it's all about.
