Register for 2 genealogy webinars this week: German Internet Research and Writing Your Narrative

Join us this Wednesday AND Friday for two exciting genealogy webinars presented by James M. Beidler and Lisa Alzo. On Wednesday, Jim will present "German Internet Research: A Launching Place for Your Research" and on Friday Lisa will present "10 Ways to Jumpstart Your Family History Narrative."
Wednesday - German Internet Research: A Launching Place for Your Research by James M. Beidler
Beidler-100Internet research for German ancestors is not as fully developed as it is for North American or British ancestors, but don’t let that stop you! There is a significant subscription site, along with some important indexes, original and compiled, records online. Fortunately, the number of actual records online is growing at a significant rate. Other German genealogy sites provide important information about places or sources. Indeed, your research will suffer if you don’t use the Internet for your German research.
Friday - 10 Ways to Jumpstart Your Family History Narrative by Lisa Alzo
Lalzo-100If writing your family history narrative is one of those tasks on your "to-do" list that you just can't seem to start, this webinar will help you get there. Learn ten simple ways to get those creative juices flowing so you can stop procrastinating and start writing yours!
Webinar Reminder: Join us for the live webinars Wednesday, June 11, 2014 and Friday, June 13, 2014, both at 2:00pm Eastern U.S. Register today to reserve your virtual seat.
