So how do you take part in these webinars? Well, you can sign up with them for a month or a year, and that gives you access to them for that time frame.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars is a membership site, and it’s just US$9.95 for a month, or US$49.95 for a whole year. To put that into perspective, that works out to only US$0.79 per webinar, and that’s without even taking in the whole back catalogue which you can view as well. You cannot get any better than that!!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up now …


And by the way, you don’t have to watch them ‘live’, as they are still viewable later. So you don’t have to worry about being up at the right time or day or night (whatever time it happens to be in your part of the world), so you won’t miss it.

Make 2017 the year to expand your genealogical knowledge, and with Legacy Family Tree Webinars, you can do it from your own home.
