Beginning Genealogy Series - Class 1 - Getting Started

Students will be introduced to the basic tools of the genealogist, including forms, computer software programs and the vocabulary of genealogy. Discussions will cover the first steps: surveying your family for information and documents, organizing your files, recording your
research and establishing research goals.

Beginning Genealogy Series - Class 2 - Using Census Records
State and federal census records are among the most interesting and accessible of all genealogical source materials. Learn how to access and search these records and see the staggering amount of information that can be gleaned from them. The class will include examples of mortality, agricultural and slave census records, as well as Canadian and Mexican censuses.

Beginning Genealogy Series - Class 3 - Documenting in the Digital Age
If you don’t keep track of your research, both online and on site, you will find yourself repeating that research, struggling to locate records you know you have, or asking yourself, “Where did I find this information?” This class introduces students to the basics of research logs, digital
record storage and the art and science of citing sources.
