  • FREE Webinar Recordings – Where Does It Say That? Learning to Love Indirect Evidence – available through Wednesday, April 1st – via Legacy Family Tree.Look at some of the feedback on this enlightening webinar:

    “Best seminar I have seen. I gained much from watching a professional genealogist work through a series of non-trivial problems.”

    “This pulled together so much of the info gleaned from various seminars on sources and analysis. It really got my mind working. I thought it would be sort of an overview to strengthen my research skills, but it went way beyond that. I will be going back to my research with an enriched sense of how to approach it.”
