Webinar (original event description)

Calico Pie and Findmypast are jointly holding a free webinar entitled ‘Discovering Family Historian & Findmypast’. It’s about how to get the most out of the Findmypast hinting feature within Family Historian (also known as ‘Automatic Internet Data Matching’). The webinar will happen on Thursday, October 27, 2016, at 4pm, British Summer Time (UTC+1), and will last about an hour. If you wish to attend, please register now at this page:

Don’t worry if you have never attended a webinar before. It’s very simple. Once you’ve registered, you will be sent an email with a link which you click on to go to the webinar (also known as a webcast). You can enter the webcast up to 15 mins before it’s due to start. All you need is a computer and an Internet connection. There will be an initial presentation followed by a Question and Answer session with experts from Findmypast and Family Historian. So it’s a great opportunity to learn more about Findmypast, and about the hinting feature, and if you have any questions, to get them answered.

Attendees will get a code entitling you to 20% discount on annual subscriptions (local or world) to Findmypast. If you can’t attend the webinar but are interested, you are recommended to register anyway.
