It’s been another great month for online events at MyHeritage, and we’re delighted to present next month’s schedule. These fascinating and informative sessions provide a great way to increase your knowledge about genealogy and expand your skillset from the comfort of your home — absolutely free.
Even if you can’t make it to the live events, you can still enjoy all recorded FB Live sessions in the Videos section of the MyHeritage Facebook page. Many of the webinars are available for free viewing on the MyHeritage Knowledge Base.
Facebook Live Sessions
You can participate in these sessions right from our Facebook page. No advance registration is required. 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. You’ll be able to ask questions in the comments, and the speakers will respond to them live.
This month, we planned a couple sessions at different times in response to a popular request to consider our users living in other time zones. We hope those of you who haven’t been able to join us at the usual times will be able to participate in those sessions!
