Wow, what a course!  I hope you enjoyed reading the last few blog posts about some of the things you will learn about in this course. There was no way I could over everything that was taught, but I hope I caught your interest.

Like I said in the introduction to the blog series I think social history is critical to beefing up your ancestor’s profile.  If you are not familiar with how to do that, or what it entails this is a course you should take. Well written and easy to read, it is more like a novel at times than a course. I did say I couldn’t put it down right?

If you are still not sure why you should consider taking this course, here are a few resources you should read about why social history is an important field of study for genealogists.

 

Good luck on your ancestor hunting and I will see you online!
