Online Webinar Presenters

After posting the article on the upcoming 2013 webinars, I thought it would be interesting to note who the presenters were for the past several years and upcoming year combined, as posted on the websites of the top three organizations. For the three combined organizations, Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS), Legacy Family Tree (LFT), and Southern California Genealogy Society (SCGS), there were a total of eighty-two speakers. SCGS has forty-four speakers from 2012-2013, with most speaking one time. Legacy Family Tree has forty-one speakers from 2010-2013, with many speaking multiple times. ISGS has 22 speakers from 2012-2013, with all speaking one time.

It is also interesting to note how many had genealogy credentials. While credentials do not guarantee the quality of a speaker, the lack of credentials is surprising. The list I created is first by the amount of presentations given, then alphabetical by the number given. There is no scientific reasoning behind my madness, just my curiosity. Also noted are credentials if listed, 12 CG, 4 AG. For those of us who can’t afford or are unable to attend the national, regional or local conferences these speakers provide a very generous service. So far I am reluctant to provide online webinars, as I prefer the audience interactions and small groups.
