April showers will bring May flowers, and likewise, a brief hiatus during April will bring a wealth of wonderful sessions in late April and May! We’ll be taking a break from Facebook Lives over the next couple of weeks, but you can bet we’ll be back with lots of great free genealogy content — whether it’s taking a virtual heritage trip with Lisa Lisson, exploring newspaper and city directories with James Tanner, or using LiveStory to tell your family stories with Daniella Levy.
Here’s what’s lined up for April and May:
Facebook Live Sessions
No advance registration is required for these sessions: you can join them straight from our Facebook page. Simply visit the page when the session is scheduled to start, and look out for the live video broadcast at the top of the feed. We recommend following our Facebook page to get a notification when we go live. You’ll be able to ask questions in the comments, and the speakers will respond to them at the end of the session.
Can’t make it to a live session? No worries — you can still enjoy all recorded FB Live sessions in the Videos section of the MyHeritage Facebook page.
