MyHeritage Online Events for June

Comments

It’s almost June! We’re here with more free online sessions for the coming month — but first, check out our new video about our wildly popular FB Live sessions:

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.


This June, you’ll learn to create a beautiful family chart on MyHeritage, research your Irish ancestors with a Gen Z genealogy whiz, ponder the ethical questions around genealogy, and more!
