DNA Boot Camps: An Easy and Low-Cost Way to Improve Genetic Genealogy Knowledge
As a genealogy society board member, you know what the challenges are when it comes to planning a monthly meeting with a speaker. Especially when you want to cover new topics especially dealing with DNA testing and using DNA results. It can be expensive, it can be difficult to schedule, etc. Webinars are plentiful in the genealogy community and free, but very often they aren’t held on Saturdays or at the same date and time as your society’s regular meetings. And try to bring in a nationally known DNA speaker . . . well that can be financially and logistically impossible!

Two Choices: Event/Meeting Content or Broadcast Content
We realize that each society provides education in its own unique way. Some groups prefer the traditional monthly meeting, others like day-long workshops, and still others have webinars and recordings available to members only.
So we’ve come up with the following two options, both with a “bundle discount” when you purchase the entire series of DNA Boot Camps:
For just $49.99 each, you receive a limited license to present the purchased DNA Boot Camp at an event or meeting. You can use the content one-time only for a long meeting (half day) or split the content into two separate meetings (90 minutes each). So for just $25 per meeting you can provide quality DNA educational content to your members!
SPECIAL Bundle Price: if you purchase the entire DNA Boot Camp series, you pay just $250, and save $100! Offer valid through October 31st, 2019.
We’ve been approached by several genealogy societies to license the content as part of their existing webinar recordings on the society website. We think this is a great way for societies to add to their educational content, and we’re willing to help make this happen – and at a reasonable price!
So we’ve come up with DNA Boot Camp Broadcast that will allow your society to post the video recordings and the handouts behind your society website’s members-only wall with an unlimited license – not a yearly license. The content can stay on your website as long as you want. Certain restrictions apply (such as setting the videos so they can’t be downloaded but can only be viewed on your website).
Each boot camp (with two 90 minute recordings plus extensive handouts) is just $99.99. And we are offering the entire series at a 25% discount – instead of $700, you pay only $500.00 for all nine – a savings of $250! Offer valid through October 31st, 2019.
