Virtual Genealogy Fair

The National Archives is trying something new–they’re hosting a virtual genealogy fair in October.  All of this will take place on YouTube, so there’s no registration or login required.   They are planning to archive the sessions, so if you can’t make one, you’ll be able to see it later.   The schedule looks promising- day one is below.  Be sure to check out days two and three on the NARA Virtual Genealogy Fair website:
