Research Notes masthead

We have some great resources to tell you about this week. While few genealogy societies are hosting face-to-face meetings, a number of them are taking advantage of the abundance of free webinars to share with their members at no cost. This is  a great opportunity for all of us. All you need is an Internet connection.

Here are some of the webinars available to all of us.

The first one comes from Ancestry Academy. They have a huge repository of free lectures an presentations covering everything from beginning genealogy to specialized courses on Mexican Civil Registrations, Quaker Research, common genealogy myths and much more. Browse the collection at https://www.ancestry.com/academy/courses/recommended.
