I work full-time, Monday through Friday, and am therefore unable to participate in these events. Are they made available online for viewing at a later time for those of who would love to participate but cannot do so? Has consideration been given to offering these webinars on weekends and in the evenings to help make them available to those of us who cannot attend/participate on weekdays?

I have tried in the past to do my family history but am not quite sure of the proper way of doing this. I end up getting too many people in the wrong places. In other words mixing my parents families together, etc. Hrlp

You certainly can watch past webinars! Go the Wiki Page (under Search) at the top of the screen, and then in the search box on the top right type in "Family History Library" and enter. This will bring you to the Family History Library page where you can learn just about everything you need to know about the Library! About half way down the page there is a section on "Classes and Online Webinars". Below the current month schedules you can click on "View past webinars" where you can access and webinars and handouts. Have fun!
