The Society is please to offer as a public service the Free Five-Part Class: Becoming a Genealogist & Family Historian with Susan J. Court.
This Free Five-Part series covers the steps to becoming a genealogist from examining the objectives and understanding the terminology; learning what records to research and where those records are located; exploring how to research in-person, online, or using DNA, and how to record and organize the resulting research on paper, online, or using software; delving into the mechanics of the online fee-based and free data bases; and finally looking at ways to share the research with others, thereby becoming the family’s storyteller.
