Article – How to Attend a Genealogy Webinar

Archives.com

My latest article entitled “How to Attend a Genealogy Webinar” has been posted at Archives.com.  This is one of many articles you’ll find as part of the Learn from Experts series at Archives.com – check it out and you will see some familiar faces among the genealogy blogging crowd!

The most recent article discusses not only how to select the best genealogy webinar to meet your educational needs and skill level, but also provides some “best practices” on creating the proper learning environment. One of my tips: reboot your computer 15 minutes before you log in to a webinar – this will help free up memory and ensure a better connection to the webinar.

Visit the  Articles page here at High-Definition Genealogy for my other recent and past articles on genealogy.

Disclaimer: this was an assignment for Archives.com in which I was paid to produce a an article on the subject of genealogy webinars.  In addition to payment, I also received a complimentary membership to Archives.com.  See the Disclosure Statements page for a list of all material connections I have with genealogy vendors.
