Webinars, institutes, conferences, and seminars. Genealogical education is vital and, in many ways, so easily accessible in 2020 and 2021 as these have gone virtual. Don’t forget to check county, regional, and state genealogical societies to see what they have to offer. Some are free, but many have a fee associated. The organization needs to pay for Zoom or other platform they use, pay the speaker, and also support the organization’s overall educational efforts. Heck, even in the case of free events, a nice donation to the society is a smart and caring thing to do! These are just two of the upcoming all-day events that might interest you, no matter where you live!
