Web seminars, or “Webinars,” have quickly become one of the most popular ways for professionals and companies to share information with large groups of individuals from across the country, or even around the world, without the high cost of travel. Webinars are just like seminars and among genealogists, Geoff Rasmussen is quite popular. Geoff is the host and regular presenter at Legacy Family Tree Webinars. Topics he has covered shows his wide and experienced knowledge base in genealogical research as well as Internet and digital tools valuable to genealogists.

Webinars are popular because a large group of “attendees” can come and watch a presentation at a given time. Webinars are nice, since they are usually recorded and can be watched again at a later time. The only real downside to webinars is the video stream can be slow for some people. Depending in large part on the viewer’s own personal Internet connection speed, video may or may not play well. The age of a person’s computer may also contribute to slow playback. To counter these playback problems, some individuals and companies offer the option to buy their webinars on CD. CD’s offer the opportunity to play these webinars on almost any computer at anytime, without the worry of connection issues.

Sharing Genealogy Electronically is a webinar present by Geoff, as originally presented to the West Valley Genealogical Society in Youngtown, Arizona and a live webinar audience. The session runs for 1 hour 49 minutes and comes with a 4 page handout.

Core topics covered in this webinar include the following:

  • Printed book
  • Print-on-demand publishing
  • Websites
  • Shareable CDs
  • and More
