    I registered for only the webinars I am interested in. I see that I have received emails from the presenters giving me some information about the subject and also at what time I should watch on the website they have shown.
    My question is this: Do I have to connect seperately for each of the lectures or can I just connect once and I can stay on until I have watched and listened to the subjects I want to.?

    • Jess


      October 26, 2017

      Hi Chandrakant, You do need to connect separately for each lecture. We look forward to seeing you there!

    Due to my Church callings, I will be unable to view and attend the conference live, but I do desire to follow by viewing later thru it having been recorded and available for later viewing.

  • Aquiles E. Ortiz


    October 27, 2017

    I am interested. Now what’s the charges

    • Jess


      October 29, 2017

      Hi Aquiles, All of the webinars in our One-Day Genealogy Seminar are free.

    Can this be recorded (taped). When will you have this again. The 29th is Sunday, my church refers to me as the kitchen goddess. I do coffee and goodies. Our mass is at 11, as we do not have a rector, but we have one who will do this Sunday at 11. This will be her last time because she has been assigned another church. We are an Episcopal Church in East Windsor, CT 06088. So we are having a nice spread for Mother Anne. I would not be able to take part in the seminar. If you can believe this, there are not enough rectors (priests). It seems not enough people are going into the priesthood anymore. There is a shortage of rectors. So we are waiting patiently to get one of our own.

      October 29, 2017

      Hi Denise, Thank you for your comment. The webinars will be available on-demand in the upcoming weeks. I hope you enjoy your Sunday.
