Introducing GeneaWebinars

25 February 2011

We keep hearing about genealogy webinars held here, there and everywhere on the Internet. Thankfully,  GeneaWebinars provides a single place to find out about upcoming events. Imagine, one calendar, and links to information on each webinar presentation in a single, centralized spot on the web!

WHO WILL USE THIS CALENDAR AND BLOG?
  • Researchers who want to attend genealogy webinars (online live seminars).
  • Societies and companies hosting genealogy webinars.
  • Individual presenters advertising  their upcoming genealogy webinars.

HOW TO USE THIS CALENDAR AND BLOG

Researchers add the blog to their blog reader (perhaps Google Reader) to receive the latest announcements about upcoming webinars. Researchers may also join the GeneaWebinars Google Calendar to receive updates, and reminders as they are set by each organizer. Researchers switching between computers simply visit GeneaWebinars.com for the latest genealogy webinar information.

Webinar organizers and individual presenters can avoid booking an event at the same time another genealogy webinar is scheduled by posting each virtual meeting on the GeneaWebinar's Google Calendar. Webinar organizers and individual presenters may request access to the calendar and the blog, by simply sending a request.

Ol' Myrt here has done her part by setting up GeneaWebinars.com, the blog and the calendar with the webinars coming up during the next two months. Now I can step back as each webinar organizer maintains his or her part of the calendar, and posts info on the blog with details about upcoming events. 

There is so much to learn. Isn't it great that commuting won't be an issue with these genealogy webinars? It is amazing what the Internet can do for us.

Happy family tree climbing!
