Don't Forget to Watch "Who Do You Think You Are?"

Braun HF 1 television receiver, Germany, 1958
This week's episode of "Who Do You Think You Are?" (Friday, March 9th, check local listings for time) will have us all learning about NFL superstar, Jerome Bettis. If you have missed the beginning of Season 3, all of the past episodes are available to watch at NBC. Isn't it cool to have a TV show about genealogy? Totally unheard of five years ago!

Want to Learn How to Organize and Share Digital Images?

Cinque Terre, Italy
Photo by Rayanne B. Melick
Are you being overrun with photos on your computer? Do your relatives want copies but you don't know how to keep track of who gets what? With digital cameras so easy and accessible these days, it is easy to become overwhelmed with the sheer volume of photos.  My relatives are still waiting for the pictures I took on my anniversary trip last year! Reason? Sheer volume! Hence my post about this!

Geoff Rasmussen of Legacy Family Tree shares his information on a newly recorded webinar from yesterday. It will be available for at least 10 days for free and then after that it may be purchased. I am a great fan of webinars as I learn so much about so many different topics. I am an even greater fan of webinars from Legacy Family Tree because they are so clear, concise, and organized! When you click on the webinars link above it will take you to the webinars page. Here you can view all of the webinars now scheduled through November 2012. Scroll down to the archived presentations and the "Organize and Share Digital Images" presentation will be the first one showing in the archives.  Have a look if you have never attended a webinar before. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
