MSOG is committed to genealogical education and is proud to now offer its members a webinar series of additional learning opportunities. This series is presented through the GoToWebinar software.

Once you register, you will receive an email with a link that will take you to the GoToWebinar website, where the software can be downloaded for free. You will need headphones or speakers to hear the presentation. There is no need for anyone other than the speaker to share their webcam during the presentation. You will be asked to evaluate each webinar and the results of the evaluations will be shared with the speakers. Begun in the 2015/16 Membership Year, our monthly webinar series is for members only!
 

Please contact the Research & Education Committee at research@msoginc.org if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to present.

Registration is required for attendance. The MSOG webinar series is available as a member benefit. Registration, handouts, and recordings will be made available only for members — for up to three months after the live presentation for those members who cannot attend.
