Sources and Citations Made Simple, Standard, and Powerful - free webinar by Geoff Rasmussen now online

The recording of today's webinar, "Sources and Citations Made Simple, Standard, and Powerful," by Geoff Rasmussen (that's me!) is now available to view for free for a limited time at Wow, I sure didn't expect to get so emotional there at the end but it was sure fun to share the moment with all 1,000 of you live viewers! A few comments from our viewers:
  •  Excellent!!!! Glad to see & hear that I'm not the only one who has emotional responses to our ancestors lives. Makes me know I'm normal. Thank you Geoff for all the information. Thank you Legacy for all that you do to make the Tree experience so much fun & so rewarding.
  • For me, this was the most immediately helpful and useful webinar that I've attended so far. Thanks so much for all the hints, tips and examples.
  • Geoff always speaks clearly and has his information well organized. Not a minute is wasted. Today I felt a special attachment for him as he showed the story of his twin cousins. He has become a "real" person to those of us who have his books and listen to his workshops.
  • I am so happy I attended this webinar. I knew citing sources was important but now I know how easy it can be when done right. Thanks Geoff.
  • I’m very fortunate to have watched this session. Very many thanks for this Webinar, it will be remembered as THE classic one. Your unstinting dedication to Legacy is admirable, and your knowledge is brilliant. WELL DONE GEOFF!
