I received the e-mail about the June webinars on July 26th? Why wasn't it sent out in May so we could schedule them? Are they available anytime now?

Charlotte,

We apologize for this mix up. Will you let us know if this has been a reoccurrence for you? We typically send out webinar notices the week before the month they begin (e.g., the last week of October for the November notices). If you missed any, please check out our archive online. Thank you for your continued support.

Does it take 2 years to get these sessions up for later viewing? When I use the link above for "Family History Library classes and webinars", the list of June webinars above are not there. In fact the classes on that link are only future classes or classes up through 2018.

I am writing in behalf of the Cheyenne (Wyoming) Genealogical and Historical Society. Our membership is usually 50-60 members. Our general meetings will usually find 20-30 in attendance. In looking for possible programs for our general membership we are entertaining the idea of possibly making use of the classes from the FHL that are offered online. Do we need any special permission to use FHL online courses in our general meetings? Is such permission granted? and What would need to be done to secure permission? Thank you, Gloria Milmont, FHC Liaison.
