Free Weeklong United States Seminar

Family History Library IP Approved

The Family History Library’s research specialists invite you to a free weeklong United States seminar. The seminar, which will be held on August 22–26, 2016, is perfect for beginning and intermediate genealogists interested in learning about U.S. regions and records, FamilySearch resources, and Family History Library collections.

Come and spend a week at the world-renowned Family History Library learning from our expert staff genealogists on how to effectively use the FamilySearch catalog, historical records, research wiki, and more. This year, various regions of the United States will be explored. Learn what records are unique to each region and what records are similar across various regions. Discover new techniques, strategies, and methodology to apply to your genealogical research problems.

In-house seating is limited to 120 attendees, and this year all classes will be held as webinars except for the hands-on activities. We ask that all participants register for the seminar whether they are planning on participating in house or online. Each in-house participant will be provided a free spiral-bound syllabus containing all class handouts and materials. Those attending by webinar will be able to print the handouts at home.

We hope this seminar will not only be informative and instructive, but that it will also encourage and inspire you to continue your family history research. Perhaps this seminar will be just what you need to break through a 20-year brick-wall research problem. We look forward to working with you!
