Legacy Family Tree Webinars Announces 2016 Schedule

I was excited to receive the announcement this morning about the 2016 Legacy Family Tree Webinars. I have enjoyed participating in the webinars for several years, as they are one of the best values in genealogy education. You can watch the live webinar for free, and for seven days after they are posted. You can also become a Legacy Family Tree Webinar member, and watch the recorded presentations at your convenience, including all of the past webinars with their handouts (more information on membership at the bottom of this post).  
Here is the lineup of instructors for 2016! I know many of these presenters, and they will do a great job. Be sure to register early for your favorites.
