More on Family Tree Webinars

Family Tree Webinars are FREE on the day broadcast and usually for several days afterward. The membership allows one to watch any of the past webinars at any time and allows the member to download the speaker's handouts. Contrary to many of the pay sites, they give you enough advance warning when the membership is expiring to cancel if you wish.
