Webinas: Preparing for the 1940 Census Project


DearREADERS,
Our friends at the1940Census.com are hosting series of webinars over the next few months. The goal is to train volunteers to index, arbitrate as individuals; and to train leaders to administer a society-sponsored indexing group. All webinars begin at 6pm Mountain time. If you need a time zone converter, there is a great one located here: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

First-time users should run the Browser Test to verify they can participate in a web meeting. Space is limited, please join early.
