How to Become a Family History Detective

If you are new to genealogy, you should read this article published in the web site:

Have you ever wondered where you came from? Who were your ancestors and what brought them to America?

If you’ve ever thought about your origins, then you’re going to want to enroll in a series of new beginner genealogy classes starting-up in South Lake this Fall (but available online to students anywhere  in the world).

The classes will be held virtually on three Wednesdays in the months of September and October by Pastfinders of South Lake County Genealogical Society.

There are different sessions you can enroll in and each one requires a separate registration. You are welcome to take as many of the courses as you want, free of charge. The sessions are:

Session 1: Introducing Immigration Facts, Review the Genealogy Research Plan, Exploring Features of Genealogy Search Engines. This presentation introduces immigration facts and how they in turn can spur research efforts.  A basic step-by-step genealogy research plan is shown. The features of several genealogy research engines are pointed out and one software genealogy program is presented. Participants see the purpose and benefits of various types of Family Group pedigree charts. September 6th from 1 pm to 3 pm.
