In recent years with the vast amounts of genealogical data now available on the Internet, both “treasures” and “tribulations” await someone wanting to conduct a search on their own family’s ancestry. In this class, you will learn the major providers of genealogical content, how to discern the difference between “good” and “questionable” data, and enhance your searching skills to improve your existing family tree. You will receive guided tours through fee based sites and engage in real-time searching on free sites. Between classes, you will receive optional assignments to research further on your own tree for discussion at the next class.
This course will be offered online via Canvas and Zoom. Course information, including a meeting link and login information, will be emailed to registrants within 1 week of the course start date.
