A genealogy class a day keeps the brick walls away! Take part in FamilyTree University’s weeklong summer workshop to get more research mileage out of essential genealogy records. The event includes eight pre-recorded video classes, plus message board discussions. Think of it like your genealogy summer “staycation”: You can study a different record group each day or focus on just a few over a long weekend, and immediately apply what you learn to your own genealogy. You make your own schedule, so you can log in and participate anytime that’s convenient to you!
If Ancestry.com is genealogy’s class president, then FamilySearch.org is the popular big-man-on-campus. The free genealogy website from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints first launched in 1999. 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.
