Suggestions on How to Spend Your Time

Kevin Mittge suggests:
From the DNA eXplained site, Roberta Estes has a good post acknowledging those sewing masks, and concludes with 5 things people can be doing right now to help take their mind off the virus.
1)  Free Virtual Genealogy Association Entertainment Show video.
2)  Free Legacy Family Tree webinar every day in April. HERE.
3)  A triple treat:  MyHeritage free photo colorization tool; All U.S. census records; and a Free Trial Subscription
4)  New DNA matches
5)  List of free Educational videos and Nat’l Archives records

Also, Family History Activities When You Can’t Focus – an article by Amy Johnson Crow from the Generations Cafe blog deals with what many of us may be experiencing – being too distracted to even do genealogy.

Merilee Mulvey suggests you may be interested in looking at:
Legacy Family Tree Webinars members should regularly check their site for webinars as well. Also, direct access to the list of Ancestry’s free record collection may be found HERE.
NEHGS members should do the same. NEHGS has an archive of webinars for the last year and many are good to watch more than once!
