It might seem a silly thing to be thankful for but with two sons in college at the same time my dollars are s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d thin these days!
But that doesn't stop me from taking advantage of many genealogy learning opportunities available. I just look for those with a price tag to fit my current budget.....FREE!
I did a quick look back at all the learning resources online in the past year that I have taken advantage of and am blown away! Keep in mind these are just the ones I can remember (this middle age brain isn't what it use to be!)
I have listened to:
12 Legacy Family Tree Webinars
3 Explorinars by Thomas MacEntee
1 Ancestry.com Webinar
1 class on the Civil War recorded by Yale Univeristy
1 PBS Documentary on the War of 1812 available online
Countless Friday nights listening to Geneabloggers Radio
Many Podcasts of Genealogy Gems
Not to mention all I've learned from the 100+ genealogy blogs that I follow! And the year isn't over yet! I still have two more Webinars I am registered for in December!
All this FREE education has allowed me to save my genealogy education dollars for my first national genealogy conference - NGS in Cincinnati in May!
Today I am so thankful for all of you in the genealogy community who share your expertise with all of us. The price tag may be free but it is PRICELESS to me.
