Tracing your family ancestry is a fascinating process. Getting Started in Genealogy will help you learn how to begin your family search using family, governmental, library, and electronic resources. Students learn how to access the billions of records and tools available in person and online. Items to be explored include vital records, family trees, census records, newspaper archives, military records, church and cemetery information, immigration information, library records, genealogy software and other resources. While the process and techniques taught in class are applicable to research anywhere in the world, the class focuses on US records.
