Foundations of Family History

Discovering your origins can be an enjoyable and rewarding adventure with an expert to guide you around and over the brick walls. This class is an introductory, yet comprehensive overview of genealogy in principle and in practice, conducted by William J. Zehner, CGSM. Six topics will get you off and running on your family history research:
  • Getting started
  • Organization & note taking
  • 20th Century record sources
  • 19th Century record sources
  • Repositories in your home town
  • Internet
Not sure those ancestors you found on the Internet are really yours? Stumped by conflicting dates? Not sure what records hold the answer to your next discovery? You'll save a lot of frustration and avoid wasting time running up blind alleys by taking this course. I'll look for you on Friday at GCCC.
