Webinar Archived: Ancestry Member Trees Can Jumpstart Your Research

"Ancestry should share this webinar with their clients." Wow! Thanks for the great recommendation. Carrie and I had a ball exploring the whys and hows of exporting genealogy data from Legacy Family Tree and uploading it to a new Ancestry Member Tree in search of scanned documents. You can view the archived webinar here for free until November 9, 2013, when this reverts to the "members only" section at Members may download our six page syllabus, and watch this and over 200 hours of other genealogy webinars for a mere $49 annually. Quite a genealogy education bargain featuring experts from throughout our genea-community.

Even MORE feedback from attendees:  

  • I have been doing family research for a long time and have been in the "maze" because of not sourcing and todays webinar was more guidance and proof for me to learn better sourcing and organization.
  • The interaction among the three participants as well as being able to see everyone made this webinar extra fun!
  • The best Webinar you have had to date   :) 
  • The three of you did a wonderful job explaining the perils of "taking" information on Ancestry for fact without proper research. Ancestry should share this webinar with their clients. Thanks for hosting. 
  •  While I have been a member of for years, I am still learning, and I appreciate sessions like this one. Thank you.  
  • Haven't been to a webinar in a while. Really liked the pictures of Geoff and presenters on the left side of the screen and having the abiltiy of them all having live mikes to interact. 
  • Learn some great things, especially about privacy and public views on Ancestry. I share with family all, but now will also have a public view. I am still working on the trees for myself and husband, so didn't want it public until I was more sure. Thanks for another great webinar. 
  • Learned a lot more about Legacy and Ancestry in this excellent Webinar.
  • Excellent. Particularly noted the difference in using family trees at Ancestry vs FamilySearch.
  • Fabulous! I will definitely use Carrie's idea about the small working trees--makes it so much more manageable! Great info from both presenters!
