Getting Started in Genealogy -- NEHGS, 99-101 Newbury Street, Boston

Genealogy is one of the most valuable pursuits in which you can participate—learning about who you are, where you come from, and meeting the thousands of people who came before you, can be a rewarding and even life-changing experience. But, how do you get started? You may have inherited family papers or research from a relative, have dabbled on a number of websites, or started your research and have already found a few records of interest. What's next? There are plenty of websites, libraries, and printed sources out there, but access to all that information can leave a beginner feeling overwhelmed.

In this course you'll learn how to navigate the first steps in tracing your family history and gain basic strategies for researching and recording data. Even if you've already been doing research for a few years, you're sure to learn a new tip or two. Register today!
