Esther and I watched the Archives Virtual Fair today and were greatly impressed with the information and the quality of the presentations. The second and last day will feature six 30 minute webinars about using the National Archives both in person and online. Remember the last live broadcast will be tomorrow, Wednesday September 4th. The Archives say that recordings will be available on their site after the fair, but I am not taking a chance.
Here is what Esther put on facebook:
you did not tune in to the live streaming webinars today that the
National Archives was putting on please do so in the morning at 9:00
a.m.. You won't be sorry. I have no plans in the near future to go to
the National Archives; however, with the National Archives Virtual Fair
today I made a tour of the Archives and was taught what is available at
each of the various Archives across the country. Introduction
to Military Records at the National Archives at Washington, DC,
Introduction to Genealogy, National Archives Washington, DC, Alien
Files, National Archives in Kansas City, MO. National Archives in Fort
Worth was the Native American Records, National Archives Online
Resources for Genealogy at the National Archives in Washington, DC. Each
session was about 30 minutes long. I am looking
forward to another informative tour of the National Archives in St.
Louis, Washington, DC, Seattle, and Kansas City, on Wednesday, September
4 beginning at 9:00 a.m. It is so easy to join the National
Archives Virtual Fair. Follow the link. Click on view live broadcast.
There are handouts for each session so you may want to print those or
save them to your computer.
