New way to deliver Family History training

FamilySearch support has announced a new way of delivering Family History training. This new method is being tested beginning with a series of classes on handwriting. These classes will be taught both in person at the Family History Library on January 31st and at the same time will be broadcast over the Internet. All interested persons need to register for the classes by sending an e-mail message to with the words “Internet Broadcast” in the subject line. Registered persons will receive instructions through e-mail on how to attend the event. Those attending the class through the Internet will be able to see the computer presentation and hear the presenter’s voice. They will also be able to ask questions by typing the question into a chat “pod.” The submitted questions will be relayed in person through the broadcast host and then answered by the presenter. The number of computers that can join these classes is limited, and registration will end no later than Friday, January 30 at 4 P.M. (MST). Below are the classes that will be offered.
