January Featured Course: Beginning Genealogy


Did you receive a DNA test kit over the holidays? Or perhaps you spent time with family looking through old photographs and need some help exploring your heritage? 

This month, we are offering our popular beginner's course at 30% off the regular price through January 31st!

Do you have a desire to research your family tree? Want to know from whom you descend and where?

Have you begun your tree but would like to build your research skills?

The desire to discover our ancestors continues to grow in popularity with the addition of online trees, genealogy TV shows, and the popularity of DNA tests.  How do we begin to create our family tree and know we are researching the right lines and adding the right people? How do we know where to look for the information we need and if it is correct? The process can be overwhelming.

Beginning Genealogy -Starting Off Right is a basic introduction to genealogy research.  View the full course information page here.  

Instructor Cheri Passey offers a quick review of what you will learn in this new course at Research Write Connect. Learn more about your instructor here.

The course is self-paced and will teach the basics of beginning your genealogy journey. During the four-part class, you will learn how to start, understand the terminology, organize your research, avoid common mistakes, and learn what types of records are available and where to find them.

Homework will provide an opportunity to begin the process of building your tree by putting the concepts into action as we move through the class. You work at your own pace, on your schedule, and take as long as you need! To help with questions or comments, you can join the optional private Facebook Group set up, especially for this class.
