What You Will Learn

This five-part webinar will cover 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.


Susan J. Court, M.A., J.D., is a genealogist and author of 12 family histories, many of which are in the collections of historical societies or museums, and 15 genealogy or history articles; a frequent lecturer on genealogy and moderator of genealogy discussion groups;  a member of nine genealogical or historical societies in the United States and Great Britain, including the Kentucky Genealogical Society where she serves as a Member of the Board; and a member of the U.S.D 1812 (River Raisin Chapter).
