[Editor’s Note: we received the following press release about new features at Legacy Family Tree Webinars!  I am a paid webinar speaker and an affiliate for Legacy Family Tree Webinars. Please read full disclosure information below.]

Legacy Family Tree Webinars, the leading genealogy and DNA education platform, announced today the addition of a new webinar channel specifically for genealogists in Australia and New Zealand. The “Down Under” series will be broadcast live the first Wednesday of every month at 12 pm (noon) Sydney, Australia time. The webinar series has been created to recognize the importance of Australian and New Zealand genealogists and to provide live genealogy education in a more convenient local time zone.

The new channel features both well-known Australian and New Zealand educators as well as international genealogists. The speakers for the 2019 series include Helen Smith, Carol Baxter, Jill Ball, Fiona Brooker, Cyndi Ingle, Thomas MacEntee, Blaine Bettinger and Paul Milner. Topics in the new series range from Australian Cemetery Records to the British Parish Chest as well as technology and DNA.

“With 30 million people combined between Australia and New Zealand and the challenging time difference between there and elsewhere, we felt we really needed to do something unique and special for genealogists Down Under,” said Geoff Rasmussen, founder and host of Legacy Family Tree Webinars. Genealogists in Australia and New Zealand will now have regular access to monthly live genealogy education with top notch regional and international experts, and not have to wake up in the early hours of the night to attend. We are very excited to be able to make this happen.”

While the “Down Under” series is geared toward the southern hemisphere, anyone is welcome to attend either the live session or the replay afterwards. The webinars will permanently be available on-demand to Legacy Family Tree Webinars subscribers. All webinar recordings will have closed captioning for the hearing impaired. Click HERE to register (free).
