Entitled Dropbox for Genealogists, here is the description for this 90-minute presentation (complete with 4-page syllabus) to be held on Thursday, April 21, 2011:

Learn how to sign up for Dropbox, install the program and get started ensuring the safety and security of your genealogy research data. Seems too good to be true, right? Two gigabytes of online storage for free? And storage that can synchronize files across your computer, your laptop and even your mobile device? It is true, and you can learn how to leverage the power of Dropbox – a free online program to back up your genealogy data and even share files with friends and family. Join webinar host, Geoff Rasmussen, and Google for Genealogists’ presenter, Thomas MacEntee for this 90-minute session.

Click here to register and given last week’s Google for Genealogists webinar – we maxed out at 1,000 participants – I advise you to register early and to connect to the webinar on April 6th early so you aren’t shut out!

This educational event is free and you will be able to participate from the comfort of your home or office via your computer! Also remember to sign up for future webinars at Legacy Family Tree while you are there.

Finally, if you can’t attend – don’t worry.  A recording of Building a Research Toolbox will be available on the Legacy Family Tree website until May 6th and you’ll also be able to purchase the recording and the syllabus materials.
