But as our friends Down Under settle into cool weather, we know they’ll be busy with research and looking for solutions via webinars! Plus, if you can’t attend a live webinar, you can always purchase the digital download at later date!

Look for these subject areas to be announced soon . . . Scrivener Plus, Trello (project management program), PowerPoint, Visual Problem Solving and more!

What’s in a Hack Genealogy Boot Camp Digital Download?

Each of the past Boot Camp sessions have been recorded and the PDF handouts have been added to create a digital “bundle.” Once you make your purchase, you’ll receive links and a secret password to access the handouts and to download the webinar videos.

You also can come back as many times as you want over a one year period to review the materials. This is a good way to refresh your memory on certain concepts or to restart a project.

The Personal version of these digital downloads is meant for personal use. If you want to use the digital downloads for your genealogy society, then purchase the Commercial version which allows for a one time broadcast of each webinar plus permission to print and distribute the PDF handouts to your audience.

Use Promo Code FLASHSALE

To take advantage of this sale, just use the promo code FLASHSALE when you check out. The 25% discount will be applied just before you make payment. Offer expires after April 30, 2015.
