Power Course: Indiana Genealogy


  • You want to know what resources are available for Indiana genealogy
  • You’ve hit a brick wall in your Indiana roots and need some fresh ideas to move forward
  • You’ve got roots in Fort Wayne and want to know about some city-specific resources

From Indianapolis to greater Chicago, whether your ancestors were early settles to the Northwest Territory or French-Canadian fur traders, German immigrants or members of the Iroquois nation, this is the course for you. Head toward your Hoosier State heritage in this week-long power course.

Family Tree University Power Courses are designed to provide a concentrated dose of genealogy education on a single topic. Students have a week to go through approximately two hours of course material. In less time than it would take to dust a crop field,  you’ll boost your research and leave with new tips and tricks to help you find your ancestors. This course is self-led and does not contain any graded exercises, but instructors are available to answer any and every question you may post on the Discussion Board.
