Family Tree University, brought to you by the publishers of Family Tree Magazine, makes learning how to trace your family tree fun and rewarding. You can complete lessons on your own schedule within your class session (usually four weeks). In each class, you’ll get guidance from an experienced instructor and be able to interact with other students. You’ll complete exercises that will help you make new discoveries about your family’s past. And you’ll have access to a library of resources and how-to material to expand your knowledge during and after the class.

Family Tree Magazine, America’s #1 family history magazine, is the leading how-to publication for those who want to discover, preserve and celebrate their roots.

Family Tree Magazine strives to provide engaging, easy-to-understand instruction that empowers readers to take the next steps in the quest for their pasts—with a beginner-friendly approach that makes genealogy a hobby anyone can do.
