Beat the Train Home Webinar Sale

I'm heading home from Salt Lake from a successful group research trip where I was able even to find some items of my own that I'll be writing about over the next several months. You can read the slavery in New England post here or the three generation deed here.

At the request of some followers, we've reactivated the webinar downloads until my train gets me back home around noon on 6 June. If there was something you missed, now's a good time as the download site is being phased out when my next billing cycle comes around in mid-June.

For those who are big fans of scanning and making digital images, I only made about 15 paper copies the entire week I was at the Family History Library.

If you missed the webinar closeout, or wanted to add one additional presentation to your collection, now's an excellent time.

Ending Of Webinar Sales on 28 May

If you've been waiting to purchase a genealogy webinar, now is a great time. On 28 May, I'm taking down the sales pages for my webinars and they will no longer be offered so that I can concentrate on other genealogy-related activities.

My contract with the hosting and download service ends at the end of the month, but we're pulling the sales pages down before that to give people time to download any purchases they make.

Downloads of webinars are immediate and presentations can be viewed as many times as you like.

Now's a great time to increase your genealogy knowledge at an affordable price.
