Date Class Instructor
26 September “Foundations of Genealogy, Part I” Ilene Murray
Whether you are just beginning or you have been working on your family history for years, sometimes you just need to rethink your strategies. We’ll look at some ways to get organized and stay that way, review basic rules of genealogy, look at the importance of citing sources, and see how timelines can help guide your research. (Register by Wednesday, 23 September.)
3 October “Foundations of Genealogy, Part II” Ilene Murray
(This class is a follow-up to the first session, and, if possible, you are encouraged to sign up for both. If you can’t make the livestreaming, be sure to watch the recording first.) Most genealogists begin with census research, but then what? We’ll look more closely at how to analyze those census records, how to get the most from vital records, and repositories and Internet sites that can help you find what you need to do better research. (Register by Wednesday, 30 September.)
7 November “Legacy Family Tree” (Genealogy software for Windows only)

This course is designed for beginners or those relatively new to Legacy Family Tree. Course content includes understanding the toolbar and personal options, documenting sources, data entry, simple reports, and tips and tricks. (Register by Wednesday, 4 November.)
