ISGS Announces 2012 Webinar Series


Illinois State Genealogical Society is proud to announce its new webinar series for 2012. For those of you new to this form of genealogy education, webinars are lectures delivered over the internet that you can access on your computer from your home or office. On the second Tuesday of each month at 8 PM Central, we will hold a live webinar, which is free to anyone. ISGS members can access a recorded copy in the Members Section of the ISGS website at any time after the live event.

In January, we kicked off the series with Thomas MacEntee’s presentation, 10 Ways to Jumpstart You Genealogy in 2012. And on February 14, Lisa Alzo presented Cool Tools for Publishing Your Family History. Both of these presentations are now available to ISGS members in the Members Section of the ISGS website (http://ilgensoc.org/members.php).

On Tuesday, March 13, at 8 PM Central, Amy Johnson Crow CG will present, Desperately Seeking Susan: Finding Female Ancestors, where you will learn about sources and methodologies to help you find those elusive female ancestors. To attend this webinar, register at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/736521718.

The lineup for the 2012 webinar series is complete, and we have some exciting presentations planned with an array of fabulous speakers. Below is a partial list of upcoming webinars, but for the complete list, visit the Webinars page at the ISGS website at http://ilgensoc.org/cpage.php?pt=234.

We've also created a flyer that you are welcome to pass along to others who might be interested in attending ISGS webinars. Be sure to print a few and hand them out at your local society meetings. The flyer can be accessed at http://ilgensoc.org/upload/menu/2012webinarbrochure.pdf.
