FREE Legacy Family Tree Webinar: WolframAlpha for Genealogists

Here is a way to attend one of my most popular lectures without leaving the home or office!  On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, starting at 1:00 pm Central, I will be teaching WolframAlpha for Genealogists over at the Legacy Family Tree Webinars site.

This lecture is FREE, but seating is limited to the first 1,000 attendees and promises to fill up fast!  Click HERE to register and then make sure you log in at least 15 minutes before start time!

What is WolframAlpha?

I was always curious about the WolframAlpha site – which is actually a computational database and NOT a search engine. Once I figure out the best ways to get information, I realized it could be used to advance my genealogy and family history research.

Want to know the historical value of $1 in 1910? WolframAlpha has the answer. Want to know all the nicknames for the given name Elizabeth? WolframAlpha has the answer. What about the weather conditions on a specific date and in a specific location.  Yep, WolframAlpha to the rescue!

I love Wolfram Alpha so much, I produced a best-selling book, Guide to WolframAlpha for Genealogy and Family History Research, which offers an insider’s look at this amazing (and FREE) “computational knowledgebase” that genealogists can leverage to assist with their research.

I hope to “see” you on the WolframAlpha webinar!
