Family Tree Webinars

The following is an announcement from

Legacy webinars! We brought you 11 highly-rated webinars including the #1-rated webinar of all time! Elizabeth Shown Mills delighted us with her class “Trousers, Black Domestic, Tacks & Housekeeping Bills: Problem-Solving with “Trivial Details“. This was the first of the 12 classes she will present this year. Viewers everywhere are raving about the series:

I’m so excited that we get to sit at the feet of Elizabeth Shown Mills this year… and that these webinars will be available for years to come.” – Dana Leeds
“I’m so looking forward to these, but I have to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you Geoff. I’m in UK, looking after elderly parents and so my opportunities for education would be greatly reduced without the internet in general, but Legacy in particular. I consider my subscription to be a must and would (and do) recommend to everyone. I would never get a chance to learn from all these wonderful people with different specialities from all over the world. Thank you!” – Helen Schenkelaars

ESM has been my genealogy guru for years. I heard her speak at national conferences and often listen to her classes, here on Legacy Family Tree, over and over. I always keep in mind her advice she gave years ago at conference…don’t be like a cow and eat the grass; be like pig and dig at those roots. (I call this going hog wild!)
Thank you, Geoff and ESM for putting these monthly classes together. It will be wonderful to have another set of classes to listen to over and over again.” – Catherine Zahn

I, too, share in your excitement. Some have even called Elizabeth’s first webinar “a genealogy paradigm shift”. I agree, it was that good. The new “Best of Elizabeth Shown Mills: Genealogy Problem Solving” series is only available with a webinar membership. Now’s the best time ever to be a webinar member – aren’t you glad you have a membership?
