Take a Lesson from a Professional Genealogist for less than a Cup of Coffee


Free stuff or next to free stuff doesn't come around too often so when it does it's best we make the most of it. 

Some of you may not be aware of the BCG - Board for Certification of Genealogists. While this organization provides classes that will help you to obtain your certification as a Professional Genealogist they also serve an even wider audience. They offer webinars for the average family historian looking to expand their knowledge but maybe are not necessarily ready to become a certified genealogist.  

You don't have to be seeking professional certification in order to utitlize their on-demand webinars that are available at your convenience.  Some of them are free and some will cost you a few dollars and I mean a few dollars. I've provided a sampling below of what is currently available with links to them. When you click on the link you'll get a preview before the video will stop and ask for your payment. 

The Current Free Ones!
