Register for Tuesday's BCG webinar (live-only): Civil Law Concepts and Genealogy by Claire Bettag, CG

Register-bcg
 
(Live webinar only - no recording will be available.) Civil law - as opposed to common law - is a legal system that governs private relationships and interactions in most non-English speaking countries. Rooted in principles derived from ancient Roman law, it is the legal system that governs an estimated 60% of the world’s populations, including most European countries. Consequently, researchers tracing ancestral lines outside the United States frequently encounter records created in a civil law tradition. Proper interpretation of those records requires understanding the underlying civil law principles. In the United States only the state of Louisiana is today ruled by civil law, a legacy of the state’s unique colonial history under France and Spain. Colonial records created under civil law are also among the colonial records of California, parts of the Mississippi Valley, the Gulf Coast, and the American southwest. This presentation discusses major legal concepts that affect records and research in civil law societies.

1,000 Webinars: History, Bloopers, Inside the Tech, and what's next

1000 webinars!

One thousand ways to find your ancestors.

One thousand answers to "what should I learn today?"

One thousand reasons to reschedule your dentist appointment.

Join us on Friday, September 20, 2019 for FamilyTreeWebinars.com's 1,000th webinar. We'll recall the history, relive the bloopers, remember the emotions, and view never-before-revealed insights of the behind-the-scenes of the webinar series that revolutionized genealogy education.

Register here (free) for the live event.

We'll have lots of door prizes to give away so be one of the first 3,000 to join to secure your virtual seat. You read that correctly - for the first time we'll triple the usual capacity (thanks to MyHeritage!) in anticipation of the largest crowd ever.

After winning a drawing for a free 1-year membership to GoToWebinar (valued at $6,000), I thought, "I'll do one webinar a month, maybe, and we'll see how it goes." The most commonly-asked question back then was, "what is a web-u-naire?" Ten years later, the genealogy webinar has transformed access to genealogy learning throughout the world.

It's humbling and exciting to be a part of something that has made a real impact on others' lives. Thanks especially to all of our wonderful instructors!

I'll see you all online next Friday. And remember, "life is short, do genealogy first!"


New "Member Friday" Webinar - How the Industrial Revolution Changed the World by Kirsty Gray

New "Member Friday" Webinar - How the Industrial Revolution Changed the World by Kirsty Gray

Every Friday we're pleased to offer Legacy Family Tree Webinar subscribers a new bonus webinar just for them! This Friday enjoy "How the Industrial Revolution Changed the World" by Kirsty Gray. 

How the Industrial Revolution Changed the World

Starting in Britain in the mid-eighteenth century, the Industrial Revolution transformed the world and the way in which millions of people lived. Its effects were more revolutionary than any other development in human history since the discovery of agriculture more than 5,000 years ago. The lives of ordinary workers and their families were radically changed as patterns of work and trade were transformed and goods came from farther afield. This webinar serves to ‘set the scene’, detailing the effects of industrialisation on people and cities in England.

As a freelance author, she has published articles in family, local and Kirsty Graysocial history magazines and handbooks across the globe. She has been researching the story of her paternal West Country family for many years and, having realised in the late 1990s that her eccentric hobby was called a surname study, co-founded The Surname Society (registering the Sillifant surname) in 2014 to meet the needs of surname studiers in the 21st century. Kirsty published Tracing Your West Country Ancestors in 2013 and is a founder member and was initially Chair (now Secretary) of the Society for One-Place Studies, an international society for family and local historians.

Kirsty has been featured on Qui-Etes Vous? (Who Do You Think You Are?) in Canada, researching the English roots of the opera singer, Marc Hervieux and in 2016, one of Kirsty’s successful adoption stories of 2015 featured on the second series of the BBC’s Family Finders. Having traded in her day job as a school teacher to follow her passion, Kirsty is widely sought after as a family history tutor, lecturer and motivational speaker around the world.

Register for Webinar Wednesday - Advanced DNA Techniques: Using Phasing to Test DNA Segments by Blaine Bettinger, Ph.D., J.D.

Register
 
Phasing is a tool used to separate your DNA into the DNA you received from Mom and the DNA you received from Dad. It requires a tested child and at least one tested parent. The benefit of phasing is that it allows us to test smaller segments which are sometimes too risky to use. Learn how phasing and "Your Evil Twin" tools at GEDmatch can help you examine and test shared DNA segments!
