What's it all about?

Tracing your family's history is a fascinating journey. Who will you discover? Genealogy Basics will help you understand the genealogy research process and the way we interpret the information we find. This course guides you through the search process for family names using several subscription-based Web sites, which you can access while you're enrolled in the class. Along the way, you'll learn through hands-on examples that help you dig deeper into your family's past. You'll develop a strategy to accomplish your objectives, evaluate the results, and share that information with others. You'll discover, in simple terms, where to look, who to contact, and how to make your family history come alive. Was it truth or goof? Where's the proof? Find out why close counts not only in horseshoes, but also in hunting your heritage.

Courses are delivered to you through expertly executed lessons, online instruction and interaction with like-minded students. Our courses are designed to deliver all of the benefits of studying in a classroom whilst giving you the flexibility to study at a time and place to suit your needs.
