Webinars

NAGC’s online seminars enhance the resources available to family history researchers. Many of these instructional courses will be based on classes developed and presented by Jerry Paulson, NAGC’s Naeseth Chair for Genealogical Research and Publication. Watch throughout the coming months as these helpful webinars are added; the online classes will be designed to assist and instruct all researchers, from beginning to advanced levels.

The webinars appear with the most recent at the top of the list. If you are a new visitor to our website and our webinars, we suggest you begin with Topic 1 and proceed in order. The How To webinars provide tips on using other websites, etc. All webinars are free. Please print the handouts for each webinar before you begin viewing the webinar.

The webinar project is made possible by the generous support of The Edwin E. and Janet L. Bryant Foundation, Inc.

Testimonials

“An excerpt from a research paper written by a high school student:     I don't have the privilege to remember my great-grandfather Wallace, and sadly never had the chance to appreciate knowing my great-grandmother Inga-as she passed away when I was too young to realize how much I could gain from getting to know her. Thanks to their daughter (my great-aunt Carol Culbertson), I was lucky enough to have extensive knowledge of both of their lives...... I conclude my project, in the peace of mind and knowledge that this great man lived a full and prosperous life, with not a moment of passion wasted.”

- Evan (Illinois)
