Class Title: Investigating Your Family History

Family history research is one of the most exciting and rewarding projects one can undertake. One has to be part historian and part investigator. This class is designed with the beginner in mind and covers research plans/methodology as well as the many available resources for the genealogist in us all. Traditional sources such as census records, immigration and naturalization records, military records, cemetery records, and county records as well as some non-traditional sources and the use of the Internet are discussed. Students are encouraged to bring family information to class.
