Webinars are a fantastic way to hone your genealogical research skills by hearing about a topic of interest from a well-known genealogist about the topic.
The Webinars are all being offered on the 2nd Tuesday night of the evening starting at 8 PM Central Time. (Just a side note – The 2nd Tuesday evening of the month is our own monthly scheduled genealogy program at the Schaumburg Township District Library! Make your choice, I know you will choose wisely!)
The topics on the schedule for 2013 look fascinating with some great presenters being offered through the year.
You do need to register in order to participate. The Webinars are open to thepublic. You do not need to be a member of the ISGS in order to register or participate for the live Webinar. As a benefit for members of the ISGS, they can then go into the archive vault to take a look at past Webinars. Non-members of the ISGS can register for the “live” presentation but cannot go in to the archives to look at the past Webinars.
Here is a link to a PDF from the ISGS where you can look at the scheduled Webinars for 2013 as well as see a list of “Frequently Asked Questions” that pertains to the Webinars. (The January Webinar has already occurred.):
It is really nice being able to view webinars that are in an archives. But as you can see, you may want to become a member of ISGS just to be able to access these wonderful learning exercises to increase your genealogy research skills.
The beginning of a new year often brings the commitment to make resolutions to better yourself in the upcoming year. What better way to do that genealogically speaking than to make yourself a better genealogist. These Webinars can certainly help you with that goal.
Check out the topics on the above schedule. There may be some that are just perfect for you.
