Study Genealogy Online Course and Learn About Where You and Your Family Came From

The study of families, family history, and the tracing of their lineages is known as genealogy. Oral interviews, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records are used by genealogists to gather information about a family and to prove kinship and pedigrees of its members. The outcomes are frequently represented in graphs or expressed as tales.

Learning about your ancestors and family history can be a life-changing experience. Discovering your genealogy and heritage reveals more about you than you may have realized. Knowing how to trace your family tree can be challenging, and after you have a lot of information, deciding what is relevant and what isn't can be difficult.

Our genealogy course contains genealogy webinars that teach you about family records used for family reunions, for tracing your family’s history, and genealogy topics. Enroll in our genealogical family history skills course to get a certificate in genealogical studies.
