  1. Do you know if these webinars are posted for future free use? They always seem to held during the business day when I cannot attend. I'd sure like to view them on my own time.

    1. I've watched a couple of courses in the FamilySearch Learning Center that looked like recorded webinars. I don't know if all of them are recorded, but apparently at least some are.
