Other Questions You Might Have

Can I preview the speakers and presentation topics?

Yes!  The full schedule is available now. Explore the Genetic Genealogy and GeneticFree Schedule here.

What if I miss the “live” presentations?

No worries!  The live presentations will be recorded, including the Q&A, and posted to the Recorded Library for that conference within a few days of airing.  We’ll notify you when they are available to watch. 

Can I watch a presentation more than once?

You can watch the presentation recordings you purchased with your registration as many times as you like.  You can start a recording, stop, skip ahead and restart as your time and interest permits.

When does access to the Recorded Library open and close?

The Recorded Libraries open at 9 am (PDT) on the Saturday of the conference. That is, for Genetic Genealogy the recordings open April 1, 2023.


Are there handouts for the presentation?

Most classes have handout materials.  When you click the link to watch the class, you will see an additional link to open the handout pdf.  You may choose to print the handout or just have it open on your screen as you watch. 

Can I record the live or recorded sessions?

NO RECORDINGS ARE ALLOWED. All presentations and handouts are the property of the speaker and may not be reproduced or used for purposes other than your personal education. Please respect the time and effort these educators have given to create outstanding learning opportunities.
