We hope your summer is going well! This month we’ve got more fascinating free online sessions lined up for you, from protecting your family history research from the zombie apocalypse to a tour of MyHeritage’s photo features with our Director of Product Management.
Before we give you the schedule, we’d like to encourage you to tell us what topics you’d like to hear about in our online live sessions in the future, and what speakers you’d like to hear from. Our free, live webinars are a fantastic opportunity to hear from some of the world’s top experts in family history, genealogy, and DNA from the comfort of your home and completely free of charge. So tell us what you’d like to learn about and who you’d like to hear from next!
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, and many of the Ask the Expert sessions are later made available for free viewing on the MyHeritage Knowledge Base.
