Two free genealogy webinars to be offered this week

Two free genealogy webinars will be offered this week focusing on writing your family story and putting your family in historical context.

Minnesota Genealogical Society will present “Get Your Story Out There” on Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. Have you been writing your family’s history and wanted to share it with the world? Or perhaps you just want to give it as a gift to your grandchildren? This presentation will cover the many options available for self-publishing. We’ll cover the latest online services that can get your work published electronically or in an actual book format. Whether you are publishing for yourself, your family, or ultimately for sale to the general public there are some important steps that you need to be aware of to protect your hard work. We’ll also cover the important topics of copyright, marketing, and selling your book.

Southern California Genealogical Society will present “Think Like a Historian” on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 1 p.m. History is looking at the big picture. Genealogy is micro-history, looking at individual people during historic events to place them within the larger context. Why do people do the things they do? Use the records that do exist to make reasonable hypotheses about the life of an ancestor.
