WELCOME to GeneaWebinars

We keep hearing about genealogy webinars held here, there and everywhere on the Internet.   Thankfully,  GeneaWebinars provides a single place to find out about upcoming events. Imagine, one calendar, and links to information on each webinar presentation in a single, centralized spot on the web!

  • Researchers who want to attend genealogy webinars.
  • Societies & companies hosting genealogy webinars.
  • Individual presenters advertising  their upcoming genealogy webinars.


Researchers add the blog to their blog reader (perhaps Google Reader) to receive the latest announcements about upcoming webinars. Researchers may also join the GeneaWebinars Google Calendar to receive updates, and reminders as they are set by each organizer. Researchers switching between computers simply visit for the latest genealogy webinar information.

Webinar organizers and individual presenters can avoid booking an event at the same time another genealogy webinar is scheduled by posting each virtual meeting on the GeneaWebinar's Google Calendar. Webinar organizers and individual presenters may request access to the calendar and the blog, by simply sending a request.

Ol' Myrt here has done her part by setting up, the blog and the calendar with the webinars coming up during the next two months. Now I can step back as each webinar organizer maintains his part of the calendar, and posts info on the blog about upcoming events. 

There is so much to learn. Isn't it great that commuting won't be an issue with these genealogy webinars? It is amazing what the Internet can do for us.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     :)
Your friend in genealogy.

This is a very cool and timely blog idea. It was such a smart move to make it possible for others to update. Just last night I put links in my search bar for Legacy and California webinars so that I would periodically check them, but this is much more convenient. Love it!

Thank you, Myrt, for setting this up! The cross-pollination opportunities for the genealogy community are staggering!
