The 24-Hour Genealogy Webinar Marathon concludes - more than 55k registrants!

8681_genealogy_conference_post_1000_1000_biz2Our 4th annual 24-hour Genealogy Webinar Marathon was a huge success. More than 55,000 genealogists (55,301 to be exact) from 70 countries registered for the live 25 hour event. The 25 wonderful speakers from 10 countries helped all of us improve our genealogy skills, while even keeping some of our attendees awake for the entire marathon. Wow! :)

You've had so many wonderful things to say about the marathon. Here are just a few of our favorites:

"I have not had a better experience of learning in my 70-plus years of existence. By the way, I was an educator by profession." - Clinton Pettus

"Thank you to Geoff, Marian, MyHeritage, FamilyTreeWebinars & everyone else behind the scenes for an AMAZING & Mind-blowing Marathon!!" - Mary Stempien

Thank you Geoff, Marian and all the presenters. If you decide there'll be a 5th Annual 24 hour marathon, I'll be there! I hope you do! It's even better than RootsTech! - Jacquie Jones Vickers

"This was the most inspiring and exciting way to spend 24 hrs. I learnt so much that will help me. I am truly grateful to your speakers for their research wisdom and attention to our genealogical needs. Also for their warm, friendly and encouraging delivery. Fabulous." - Julia Elliott

Of the hundreds of hours that we at Legacy Family Tree Webinars, MyHeritage, and the speakers put into this event, we couldn't have been more pleased with the turnout, and with what seemed to be a flawless event.
