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 One will help you advance beyond these basic records. This Part One class will teach you how to access and use the following records in depth: census records, church and government vital records, cemetery records, military records, and newspaper/obits in depth. Learn new terms such as enumerator, census schedules, baptisms vs birth, DD214, MOS, service #, sources, obits, 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 Poudre River Libraries and your home. Handouts will be available. 

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

Be sure to register for Intermediate Genealogy Part Two coming on November 17! That class will include Directories, Land Records, Passenger & Naturalization Records, Court Records, DNA, and Lineage & Ethnic Societies in our area.
