Genealogy Webinars

Genealogy webinars are wonderful "inventions": they allow us to learn new techniques, and to keep abreast of new developments in the genealogy world that can helps us in our search for our ancestors' life stories, and in building our family trees. All of this, of course, from the comfort of our own homes, or wherever we happen to be!

I have found the vast majority of these webinars to be of very high calibre, and they provide a good mix of different topics related to genealogy. Over the past year, I have attended webinars on DNA as it applies to genealogy; a couple on breaking down brick walls; and several on the use of various different technologies to genealogy, such as 'cloud computing', and Google Earth.

The following calendar of upcoming genealogy webinars is maintained by DearMyrtle, a genealogy blogger who also does webinar presentations, and is housed at

I have placed the webinar feed here for your convenience, along with a couple of links to the most common companies hosting the webinars.

I hope you find it useful!

The calendar has automatically adapted the times given to Eastern Standard Time (or Eastern Daylight Savings Time, when it arrives), as that is my time zone. You may need to adjust for your time zone accordingly.

Links to Companies Sponsoring Webinars

As pre-registration is almost always necessary, and some webinars require payment, links to the various companies providing the webinars should be of assistance. So here they are:

  • For Legacy Family Tree webinars, click Go to Legacy Family Tree Webinars for more details and to register.

  • For Family Tree University webinars, click

    (Please note: the first item listed in the 'Featured Products' section is the next upcoming webinar. Click on the link containing the webinar name for further information, or on the 'Add to Cart' button to pay and register).

As far as I can tell, those are the most frequently used links to the webinar companies. If there are others that you'd like to see here, please leave me a comment below, and I'll do my best to track it down and add it.

Thanks for your help!

In the interests of full disclosure, I confirm that I have affiliate relationships with both of the above companies.
