Searching Not Asking: Mastering Online Genealogy

ILR918 Searching Not Asking: Mastering Online Genealogy
3 sessions, 6 hours

While online resources are only a small percentage of the records that family historians should investigate, they are an important part of one’s genealogy practice, especially if you cannot travel to pursue your research. This course, designed for genealogists of all levels of experience, will discuss how to make the most of the well-known resources, FamilySearch, HeritageQuest, and Ancestry, as well as how to locate unique websites and online sources. Improve your genealogy journey as you learn to “search” the internet, not just “ask” the web.
