UGA VIRTUAL EDUCATION AND CHAPTER COME TO YOU
The Utah Genealogical Association is pleased to announce the launch of two virtual education initiatives for genealogists of all kinds--the UGA Genealogy Training and Tutorial Library (UGaTT) and the UGA Virtual Chapter. An introductory overview of both virtual projects can be found at http://bit.ly/ckL4db. This video overview is a summary recording of Barry Ewell's presentation from the UGA membership meeting on October 19th. This recording covers the designs and plans for each project as well as the dates and stages of roll-out. The introductory video is a great way to understand the sweep of the plans and get excited about the progress that is coming as we take UGA into its 40th anniversary year.
