Webinars From The Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS); “Live” Webinars Open To All; Archived Webinars Available To ISGS Members

Hi Everyone!

I just noticed that the Illinois State Genealogical Society has jumped in with both feet to offer online genealogy “webinars”.  These online training sessions are wonderful ways to learn more about genealogy and to advance your skills.

It appears that anyone can register to participate in one of these “live” online webinars.  They do appear to be scheduled on the 2nd Tuesday of the evening of each month (that is our program night!).

The sessions are free.

The sessions are being recorded.  These will then be placed in the society archives and be made available only to members for viewing.  So you can see that membership in various genealogical societies has its benefits!

Here are titles of the next two upcoming programs:

April 10, 2012 – 8 PM – “Going Digital: Organizing Your Research Files Electronically” – Presented by D. Joshua Taylor

May 8, 2012 – 8 PM – “Some Great, Seldom-Used Resources: A Genealogical Potpourri” – Presented by Timothy Pinnick

Registration is required in order to participate in the “live” event.  ISGS members are entitled to view the previously recorded webinars in the ISGS Archives.

You can take a closer look at all of the planned upcoming webinars for the balance of 2012 at the ISGS portion of their website at:

2012 Upcoming Webinars From The Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS)

Webinars are the way to participate in the learning experience to advance your genealogical skills.

Here is also a link to an ISGS supplied PDF file that provides a summary for 2012 for the entire schedule of upcoming programs and information on how to participate.  You can see this handy 1 page aid at:

Unfortunately, live participation conflicts with our monthly programs that occur on the same day at about the same time.  Membership in the society will get you access to the archive of previously provided webinars.

Browse around the total of the ISGS website to see what else catches your interest.  You can visit their general site at:

  1. Thanks for the shout-out, Tony! Sorry these fall on the night of your programs, but yes, ISGS members can view the archived recordings at their convenience after the live broadcast.
