ISGS News:  Upcoming Webinars
 
Join us on Tuesday, February 12 at 8:00 PM Central, for our first webinar of 2019. Our featured speaker, Judy G. Russell, will present a program about the laws our ancestors lived by in earlier times:
 
Revelers, Hogkillers and Disobedient Children: Early Illinois Laws
 
To attend this webinar, register now at 
  • Registration Procedure: There are only 500 available "seats" for each webinar and we have limited the number of registrations for each webinar to 650. Past experience has shown that approximately 30% of those who register don't attend a webinar.
  • Recommendation: login to the webinar EARLY - access begins at 7:30 pm Central. Once the "room" fills up with 500 attendees, others attempting to join will receive a "room full" message.
  • Spread the Word: Forward our Webinar Flyer to your friends and colleagues, post the information to social media sites and/or your blog/website, or print out a few copies to hand out at your local society meetings. To download the Flyer, click here.
