Do you want to learn from some of the world’s best genealogy presenters, right in your own home, and when it’s convenient for you?

You can.

And if you’ve got a quiet Easter break planned, use it to advantage as this coming weekend you’ll have FREE access to 500 hours of family history seminars to watch and learn from.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars have been a pioneer in this field, and their webinars bring guest speakers from around the world to your own computer.

The first Family Tree Webinar was held on 1 September 2010, and they really haven’t looked back since then. Geoff Rasmussen wrote a great article on how it all started, together with some memories of them, you can read that here.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars began holding webinars twice a month, then once a week, and have been known to have up to eight in one week. To date they have held 499 of them, with over 140 different speakers, and covering hundreds of different topics. And with Eric Basir’s presentation on “Complete Photo Restoration in 4 Easy Steps: Learn how to scan, restore and print a photo like the pros from beginning to end in four basic steps” which is on this coming Friday, at 2pm EDT (Saturday, 3am Sydney time), they reach the incredible milestone of 500.

This coming Easter weekend, Legacy Family Tree Webinars are unlocking the membership key of their Webinar Library for the first time ever. Beginning Friday (early morning Saturday Australian time) and continuing through Sunday evening (Monday, mid-morning) the entire library – all 500 classes – will be open and free to the public. Just visit and browse or search for any topic or presenter and enjoy!

Legacy Family Tree Webinars is a subscription service which costs US$49.95 for a whole year, or US$9.95 for one month, and that gives you unlimited access to the entire webinar library. Which if you think about it is less than $0.10 per talk, and you can’t beat that for value!!
