If you have not heard of the webinars that Legacy Family Tree posts online for your education, you need to be brought up to date. This link: http://www.legacyfamilytree.com/webinars.asp, will take you to their webinar page. While, as might be expected, the slant is toward Legacy Family Tree software, the webinars that are produced are of benefit for all levels of genealogists. You can register to be part of a live webinar, or listen to an archived webinar. It is generally the practice of Legacy to post the archived version for usually 10 days. After that, the webinar is available for purchase on a CD for personal or society use.
Some of the upcoming webinars are "Is My Pet Frog Part of My Family", Children and Genealogy in the Classroom (December 14), Digital Books and Sites for Genealogists (January 4), Pilgrims and Patriots: Discovering Your Massachusetts Ancestors (January 18), Ten Brick Wall Tips for Beginners (February 15) and Are You Ready for the 1940 U. S. Census Images? (March 7). Plenty to entice many genealogists to listen online.
Keeping with the theme of "Sorting Saturday," one in particular might be of interest for those of us who are burden with stacks and stacks of research information. The webinar was originally produced on November 4, 2011 and entitled "FamilyRoots Organizer System." The presenter was Mary Hill who declared the system "easy to understand, simple to set up, and simple to use." The presentation lasted for roughly an hour and a half, and presents a variety of methods for a paper filing system. So if you are searching for a system, be sure to check out these suggestions, one might work for you.
