There’s a reason FamilySearch tops nearly every list we create here on Family History Daily–they offer the most extensive free genealogy site in the world. Their learning center is no less impressive. With a massive selection of quality courses on nearly every topic and location imaginable, you’re certain to find something of interest.
Dozens of informative, family history related podcasts are available to download free and to listen from the UK National Archives, ranging from beginner topics such as Tracing Scottish Ancestors and What Can You Learn from a DNA Test? to interest-specific talks such as Records of Bankruptcies in the National Archives and Sources for Tracing Agricultural Labourers.
Most of us think of Ancestry as a paid resource, but they do offer a variety of helpful freebies, including a vast learning center. Some (but not all) of the webinars and resources place a focus on finding records on Ancestry.com but are still very helpful for general research.
Legacy Family Tree offers anywhere from two to five free online webinars each month, with presentations from nationally known speakers including Megan Smolenyak, Maureen Taylor and many others.
