The following announcement was written by the (U.S.) National Genealogical Society (NGS):
The course consists of three parts with eighteen lessons which build on one another. Students will learn how to examine sources and develop a research plan. The course demonstrates how online resources and published family history sources can impact students’ research. Also featured are
a step-by-step process for using, locating, and evaluating genealogy records;
practical applications to apply lessons to personal family research;
case studies and citations that illustrate how to put lessons into action; and
complementary NGS Magazine articles and videos.
Foundations in Family History is the ideal course for the DNA test taker who wants to create a family tree to connect with matches; the genealogy enthusiast who wants to take their family history knowledge to the next level; or the librarian or archivist who wants to learn more to assist their patrons. This course, along with a new certificate course for more advanced researchers coming later in 2022, replaces American Genealogical Studies.
