Want to Research Your Ancestors?

If you're interested in learning more of your family history, you could come to the Library and borrow one of our genealogy how-to books such as How to Do Everything: Genealogy by George G. Morgan [929.1 MOR], or, you could take a class. I recently read about a free online class, "Genealogy: Researching Your Family Tree," being offered by the University of Strathclyde (located in Glasgow, Scotland, but you need only travel as far as your computer or device). In case you're wondering about how much prior knowledge you need, let me quote from the website, "No special knowledge or previous experience of studying is required." The course begins on July 18, so don't think too long!

Free on-line classes start daily at universities around the world. If genealogy doesn't interest you, then there are dozens more courses, one of which is sure to appeal to you. Check out our Pinterest board titled "Free Online Courses," to browse some of the offerings.
