Online Genealogy Q&A
Now, any member of the public can request an online session to get answers to their genealogy questions. One of our Q&A team members will respond to that request by setting up an online chat session to discuss your situation and get you on a path to the answers you seek.
So, if you are new to genealogy, now is the perfect time and this is the perfect way to begin researching your family history. We can show you the easiest and fastest ways to get started. And, if you have some genealogy experience, we can provide the help you need to get your research to the next level.
All you need to do is register.
So, click on this link On-line Request Form and request an Online Genealogy Q&A meeting. We think you will enjoy the process, meet some fellow family history researchers, and learn some worthwhile new things to boot.
No membership necessary. All levels of experience welcome.
