Two New Webinar Providers

It's very exciting that more organizations are getting involved with providing webinars.  Two new providers have recently come to my attention.  Both of these organizations are offering free webinars available to the general public (no membership required).

1) Illinois State Genealogical Society

Their website has this to say about the webinars:

"Each month ISGS will offer an educational webinar with topics focusing on Illinois research, methodology, and beginning research. All ISGS webinars are FREE and open to the public when they are presented live. After the live broadcast, an archived on-demand copy of the webinar will be available to ISGS members via the Members Section."

Their next webinar is this evening, Tuesday, January 10, 2011. The topic is "10 Ways To Jump Start Your Genealogy presented by Thomas MacEntee."  You can register here.

2) The Association of Professional Genealogists (APG)

APG issued the following information in a press release:

"With the increased demand for professional development options for genealogists, the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) announces a new webinar series for 2012. APG webinars will cover topics of interest to professional genealogists with a focus on tools and best practices for running a genealogy business.

Tax Considerations for Your Genealogy Business (U.S.) Wednesday, 11 January 2012

The first offering in the APG webinar series, Tax Considerations for Your Genealogy Business, will be presented by nationally-known genealogist, educator, and writer, James M. Beidler, on Wednesday evening, 11 January 2012, at 8:30 P.M. Eastern time.

Whether you earn your income from research, teaching, writing, or another form of genealogical activity, there are many tax decisions which affect your genealogy business. Should you form a sole proprietorship or an LLC? Take a deduction for your home office? File a 1099 for subcontractors? Jim Beidler, a Senior Tax Advisor for H&R Block and owner of his own genealogy business, will share his strategies for maximizing the deductions on your 2011 tax bill while planning ahead for 2012.

To kick off our webinar series, this first APG webinar is FREE to the public as well as to members of APG. Those wanting to attend are encouraged to register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/385781994 since space is limited."

These webinars sound very informative.  Be on the lookout for more offerings from these organizations on the GeneaWebinars website calendar.
