Hi Thomas. I'd like to view the Civil War webinar, but won't be able to during the time that it's offered. Is there a way that I can view the recording of it afterward WITHOUT signing up for the webinar? I'd just hate to take up a webinar seat that someone else might be able to use.

I went to the website for Family Tree University and used the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page - you should email and ask them your question. I don't see anywhere that the recording will be available after the webinar so perhaps you should ask.

Isn't this during the same time as your Google Toolbox webinar? This is when a split personality really would come in handy!!!

This looks great! I'm signed up. I'm going to have to catch the recording of Thomas's webinar.

Just dropping a comment to note that this webinar is not on the Calender. Thanks, love this blog and service!
