You can take in a genealogy seminar from the comfort of your own home, and through your very own computer. They are called webinars and can be about any topic at all, including genealogy. Here are a few to check out that will be coming up the next couple of weeks.
Ancestry.com has started doing webinars through LiveStream once again. It seemed to me that they went on a hiatus for a while (but I could be wrong about that). In order to attend these webinars, you must RSVP. They have several coming up this month. Each will start at 1:00 P.M. And end at 2:00 P.M. EST.

January 22: Clean Up Your Family Tree

GeneaWebinars has a free UGA Webinar that will take place on January 17, 2013. It will begin at 7:00 P.M., and end at 9:00 P.M. MST. These webinars are how the monthly UGA chapter meetings will be presented. Access them through “Go to Webinar”. It allows PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android users to participate.
The new webinar will feature special guest speaker Don R. Anderson, Senior Vice President for FamilySearch. His topic will be What’s New with the FamilySearch Family Tree? If you want to attend this webinar, you must register.
