For several years I have been ordering genealogy lectures on CD. I use this method to learn about topics presented at conferences I have been unable to attend, or for lectures I really enjoyed and want to hear again. There is a wide selection of topics for everyone from beginners to advanced genealogists. The CDs are very reasonable at $12 each.
Here are a few of my favorites from the NGS Conference in Salt Lake City, April 2010:
S-424 – Elizabeth Shown Mills, CG, CGL
Finding & Using Birth, Marriage, & Death Records Prior to Vital Registration
T-253 – Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, CGL
Organizing Evidence to Overcome Record Shortages
S-451 – Laura Murphy DeGrazia, CG
