With its recent revamp, the site has added features including photos and interactive fan charts to its already rich repository of family records and searchable family trees. This course is certain to expand your knowledge of this awesome online resource for family history, so sign up today.
Technology today puts the family tree at your fingertips–whether at home, in the library, or anywhere else you have access via smartphone or tablet. But convenience is only one reason to explore online family trees. They are a great way to organize, share and report your research. Searching the trees of others who may be working on your brick-wall ancestors can show you the way to bust down that, as well as open up new avenues of research.
Let Google Earth expert Lisa Louise Cooke be your guide to mastering the genealogy benefits of this free software in one short week. You’ll learn how to tap into Google Earth’s robust features to bring depth and a new perspective to your family history research, as well as create projects that enhance your genealogy with a “wow!” factor.
