MyHeritage Online Events for March

This month marks one year since we began offering our free online Facebook Live and Ask the Expert sessions! While we wouldn’t have chosen the circumstances that inspired us to begin these sessions, we couldn’t be more grateful that we’ve been able to provide this valuable free content and bring the genealogy community together during this challenging year.

We’re roaring ahead with plenty of fantastic sessions for you this month!

Our free, live webinars feature top experts in genealogy, family history, and DNA speaking on a wide variety of useful and relevant topics. Thanks to the live format, you can ask questions and interact with the lecturers in real time. 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.

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. You’ll be able to ask questions in the comments, and the speakers will respond to them live.
