Do you know about your family’s origins beyond your parents and grandparents? The ancestors of most Americans are immigrants, arriving within the last 400 years and commonly within the last 150 years. In this course you’ll learn how to use census data, archival records and other sources to trace your genealogical past and determine when your family arrived and from where. You’ll also learn how to compile this information into a free software program and share it with others.
Recommended: during the holidays, talk to your parents and other relatives to gather as much name, date and location information as you can before coming to the workshop: relationships, births, marriages, deaths, migration, etc.
