I just received an awesome email that's worth sharing. The Board of Certification of Genealogists (BCG) and Legacy Family Tree Webinars are co-hosting a full day of FREE webinars on Friday, October 7, 2016. Here's what's cool about it--it's FREE and can be viewed on your computer at home!! Five of the workshops are available--minus David McDonald's, which appears to be a hands-on only type of workshop. But that's okay.
By the way--did I mention that it's FREE??? How cool is that?? So, all the details are below:
