Using Church Records to Identify Ancestors - free webinar by Mary Hill now online for limited time

LogowhiteThe recording of today's webinar by Mary Hill, "Using Church Records to Identify Ancestors" is now online to view for free for a limited time. Mary explained about the importance of church records, the different denominations and the records they created, how to locate church records, how to find out which religion your ancestor was a part of, and how to overcome the challenges of working with these records. I loved Mary's comment, "church records are a gift from heaven."

Our live viewers were also treated with live webcams from both Geoff and Mary - another reason to attend live if you can. AND...I (Geoff) got to try out my new green screen equipment for the first time. It was a blast broadcasting (vwith green screen equipment) from the old family church in Nilose, Denmark:

Thanks Russ Worthington for the screen captures! Just imagine the possibilities - I can broadcast from anywhere in the world! Oooo, we're going to have fun with this in the coming months....
