It’s difficult for many people to fly around the country attending genealogy conferences. Family Tree University has a terrific solution for family historians and genealogists for folks who can’t travel everywhere. They’re hosting a Virtual Genealogy Conference where you’ll learn about strategies and resources to boost your research all from the comfort of your own home.
The conference starts at 9 a.m. Friday, September 14 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday September 16.
For $199.99 you get a three-day all-access pass to watch 15 pre-recorded video classes and participate in live chats. Join in every day or as your schedule allows—you make your own schedule.
The price is very reasonable when you consider the cost of travel on top of admission fees. You don’t get to network with associates but there are other benefits, such as:
- “15 half-hour video classes in three tracks:
- genealogy technology track
- research strategies track
- ethnic research track
- Unlimited viewing:
- Make your own schedule
- Live chats and message board discussions
- Value: Conference registration saves you 55% off the price of purchasing each video separately ($29.99). It’s like getting 8 classes for free!
- “Swag bag” of freebies from ShopFamilyTree.com”
