German Church Records Webinar: Friday, May 1

I am very excited to have been asked to be a part of the Vivid-Pix Webinar Series this Friday! This webinar series, sponsored by Dan Earl, is designed to help you learn from some of genealogy’s leading experts and get “round to” getting your old photos, documents, and genealogy life in order. In my talk, I will teach you all about German church records – amazing treasure troves of information for genealogists. I hope to see you there! 

I first met Dan at RootsTech a few years ago. Since then, he has very kindly included me in his video interviews and even highlighted my new book The Magic of German Church Records in his  post Best of the RootsTech Vendor Hall at this past conference (back when we could still go to conferences…how long ago that seems!). I’m excited to continue working with him this coming Friday. I hope you’ll join us!

From Dan: 

We are living in an unprecedented time in the world’s history. Due to the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic many people are feeling anxious and stressed and are looking for ways to connect. Experts suggest that limiting the amount of news we watch and creating new habits can help cope with stress. The Vivid-Pix “Round Tuit” web series can help those new to genealogy create new habits and is a fun and relaxing alternative to the nightly news. The series is broadcast live each Tuesday and Friday, and if the time doesn’t work for you, they’re available to watch later, anytime, anyplace.

This series is unlike any other webinar you have been to, in so many good ways. Rather than just sit through a fifty to sixty-minute lecture feverishly taking notes and hoping you don’t miss anything, this series allows you to learn from, laugh with, and get to know the speakers like never before. You will still get to listen to them teach you, but for a much more manageable thirty to forty-minutes. Have you ever wanted to know what advice your favorite speaker would give themselves if they could travel back in time to the first day they started doing genealogy? Want to find out what is still on their “genealogy bucket list?” What about the last book they read? The Vivid-Pix “Round Tuit” series will help you learn all of this and more.

Vivid-Pix, the sponsor for this series, offers their RESTORE image improvement software which utilizes their patented Artificial Intelligence to automatically bring your old, faded, sepia, black and white or color photos and documents back to life. So, head to to register for a live event or to purchase a past event and download the Vivid-Pix RESTORE software while you’re there so you can give your old photos and documents the Vivid-Pix Fix!

Hope you can join us!

    My wife and I have been doing family research for many years… many trips to Germany and Poland. I see your last name is Schober… which is part of our family line. Is this a married name. What part of Germany is this line from. I was born in Munich. I think my wife may join your webcast.

      Servus Helmut!

      That’s exciting. My Schober is my married name, and my husband is from Austria. As you likely know, Schober is definitely very Bavarian/Austrian. Glad your wife will be joining us on Friday!
