Our way of saying thanks

It’s the way the Board for Certification of Genealogists says “thank you” to the staff of the Family History Library each year.

When BCG’s Board of Trustees gathers in Salt Lake City for its semi-annual meeting each fall, we say “thank you” to the FHL through a series of free lectures.

And, thanks to the efforts of our webinar partner, Legacy Family Tree Webinars, those lectures are also our way of saying “thank you” to the entire genealogical community.

So, tomorrow, Friday, October 19th, starting at 9 a.m. Mountain time, five free lectures will be given at the Family History Library free to all FHL staff — and anyone else who happens to be in Salt Lake City at the time.

And, tomorrow, starting at 9 a.m. Mountain time, all five lectures will be broadcast free, recorded and available free for a time, and then available forever in the BCG library at Legacy Family Tree Webinars.

Here’s the line-up, starting at 9:00 a.m. Mountain daylight time (MDT) and running through to 4:30 p.m. MDT, on Friday, October 19, 2018:

• 9:00-10:00 a.m. MDT – “Past Conflict Repatriation: The Role of Genealogists and Methodology in Fulfilling Our Nation’s Promise,” presented by Jeanne Larzalere Bloom, CG
