When you’re a family history newbie, the prospect of diving into your roots research can seem overwhelming.
We’ll help you get started with our free, two-week Family Tree University course called Discover Your Family Tree: Genealogy for the Absolute Beginner.
This course, which begins Monday, Oct. 11, will start you on the fun and rewarding journey of discovering your roots. You’ll learn how to begin, where to look for information to extend your family tree, what to do with what you find and how to put it all together. Family Tree Magazine publisher and editorial director Allison Stacy is the instructor.
Family Tree University courses are self-paced. You download each lesson (two for this course; four for most others) and any accompanying articles and go through it at your computer, or you can print the materials. Each lesson concludes with a quiz or exercise. You’ll receive feedback from your instructor via e-mail, and you can communicate with the instructor and your fellow students on a message board.
The next session of Family Tree University how-to genealogy courses begins Oct. 11. You can see all the offerings on Family Tree University.
