Ah! Fall is here with the crisp mornings and warm sunny days. Fall reminds me of going back to school, sharpening those pencils, charging those computers and preparing to learn and grow. As you look for new ways to hone your skills check out the Legacy Family Tree Webinars.
The Legacy News Family Tree website includes information about purchasing and using their Legacy genealogy program as well as well-crafted articles and webinars. Many of the webinars are free. You can filter on language, free webinars, the presenter or subject to narrow down your choices. You have the option to subscribe to all their webinars for $49.95 per annual membership.
Here’s what the main page of the webinars looks like. If you can use the “Browse the Library” in the upper left or choose to view Upcoming Live Webinars or Webinar Library to explore their offerings. The Genealogy Store is available if you are interested in purchasing a pdf of various publications.
A recent Legacy newsletter has a fun challenge that I thought you would enjoy. Click on this link and see if you can decipher this old 18th century document by answering the questions below the document. According to the article, the September 20th newsletter will contain the answers so no peaking until you’ve given it a try!
When we practice and hone our skills transcribing these old documents, we make ourselves better genealogists and we can make the most of every scrap of information available in a document. Instead of focusing only on the names and dates, we can discover those tidbits from our ancestors’ lives that help make their story more complete. How many of us are so lucky to have a document like this one that has the ancestor note in his own words the location of the house he was living in the 1600s?
I’ve found subscribing to their weekly newsletter provides an easy way to learn about what’s new and find other gems. You’ll also notice references to MyHeritage. This is because Legacy was purchased MyHeritage a few years ago.
So, pause in your fall cleanup activities and carve out some time to watch a webinar about one of your favorite genealogy topics.
“We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.”
With a lifelong passion for genealogy and history, the author enjoys the opportunity to share genealogy tidbits, inspiring others to research and write their family story.
