Saturday, October 8, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Loveland Library in the upstairs Erion Room!

Class Description

Now that you’ve looked at basic records such as the census and vital records, are you wondering what to do next?  Intermediate Genealogy Part Two will help you advance beyond these basic records. This Part Two class will teach you how to access and use the following records in depth: directories, land records, immigration, passenger, and naturalization records, court records, and lineage societies in depth. Learn new terms such as Gazeteer, grantor, grantee, metes & bounds, sections & acres, immigration ports, wills, probate process, testate, intestate, declaration of intent, final decrees, DNA testing, DAR, SAR, and other esoteric terms that tend to confuse novice record users and where to find these records.

This FREE, three-hour class will provide clues you’ve been looking for to take your family history to the next level. Plus we will review the databases available at Loveland Library and your home. Simple handouts will be available at the class plus the presentation slides will be emailed to you the day before the class. 

Recommended to have attended Introduction to Genealogy class if you are a beginner before attending this class.
