Neglected History - free webinar August 1 by Megan Smolenyak


It's remarkable how much of our history has been ignored or distorted, but with a little patience and healthy dose of curiosity, any of us can ferret out the truth! In this webinar, Megan Smolenyak walks audience members through a handful of cases she's been involved with, ranging from finding the proper resting place for a tombstone discovered on a Manhattan sidewalk (and its surprising connection to a Yiddish language cookbook) to figuring out who would be king of America today if George Washington had been king instead of president.
Join us for the live webinar on Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at a special time - 6pm Eastern U.S. The webinar will be broadcast live from the BYU Genealogy Conference in Provo, Utah. Register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. Before joining, please visit www.java.com to ensure you have the latest version of Java which our webinar software requires. When you join, if you receive a message that the webinar is full, you know we've reached the 1,000 limit, so we invite you to view the recording which should be published to the webinar archives within an hour or two of the event's conclusion.
