NYG&B members who have registered for their free Findmypast account are invited to enjoy a free monthly webinar and other benefits offered through the Findmypast First program.
On Wednesday, August 26, Findmypast family historian Jen Baldwin will present a live webinar at 1:00 pm EST (6:00 pm BST) on “Filling the Gaps with PERSI: The PERiodical Source Index.” The Periodical Source Index contains over 2.5 million entries from thousands of periodicals that focus on genealogy and history. PERSI is an outstanding tool for searching the content of the NYG&B Record and other periodicals on Findmypast. The webinar will include a Q and A. Two hours following the live webinar, it will be available on demand at findmypast.com. To register for the webinar, sign in to Findmypast and go to http://www.findmypast.com/first/webinar-persi.
