  1. Was this webinar saved in some format? I missed the notification but am interested in the webinar. Thank you.

    • Hi Tina,
      This webinar is offered in conjunction with Legacy and is available for viewing after the live event on both sites. The last paragraph of this announcement includes links to webinar information at both Legacy and BCG. Legacy’s website states the webinar will be available to view for free on the website for seven days. After seven days it can be viewed by members who subscribe to Legacy. The Board for Certification of Genealogists website contains information about this and past videos. As you can see, some are free; most are available to view or purchase for a reasonable fee. I hope you enjoy the presentation.
