July Presentations

We have three great presentations for our members this month. Here’s the line-up:

July 10 8pm Eastern

Katherine R. Willson presents “Our European Ancestors’ Voyage to America

Learn how your European ancestors’ voyage to America changed from the 17th century through the 20th century. How did they prepare for the journey? What immigration restrictions & quota laws did they face? How were ports of departure and arrival chosen? What was the ticket cost? How long would the journey take, and what were the ship accommodations?

July 22, 1 pm Eastern

Laura Hedgecock presents “Blogging Your Genealogy

Is blogging for you? Learn how blogging can help you connect with your past as you share and collaborate with others. We’ll discuss how to choose a blogging platform, generating ideas for content, promotion, and blogging versus other writing.

July 28, 11 am Eastern

Helen Smith presents “Mapping Your Ancestors

Family historians can benefit from using a variety of map types in their research. Discussion includes information on topographic maps, railway maps, and more; as well as information on the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection and collections from other repositories.

Registration is available in the members area of our website, under the “Perks” tab. Not yet a member? Join us: https://virtualgenealogy.org/membership-join/




  1. Will any of these be available for viewing after the date? The one I wanted to attend is not free so I am curious if that feature is available to members.

    • Yes! All of our presentations are recorded and made available to members for 6 months after the live webinar.

  2. When I click Programs registration on the Perks tab, it sends me back to the Join Us membership screen. Please fix so I can register for Katherine’s webinar.

    • Can you make sure that you are logged in before you try to register? If you are not logged in, the website thinks you are not a member so wants you to join first so we can keep the webinars for members only
      Let me know if that doesn’t fix the issue
