F is for FAMILY
There are many reasons to begin researching your family history. Identifying and recording your findings can be overwhelming, but we have courses to guide you through the process. This includes using the Internet and searching for living relatives. Not everyone looking for genealogical education is looking to become a professional researcher.

You can take courses individually, or bundled together at a discount. If you plan to take several courses, it is more beneficial to customize your own package of courses. This is especially helpful if you have already completed some of the courses. Register for the balance of the courses needed to complete your desired online education goals.
