BEGINNING GENEALOGY USING FAMILY SEARCH AND FIND A GRAVE – CLASS DESCRIPTION
COURSE ENROLLMENT - Enrollment for this class is limited to 8 students.
COURSE LOCATION - Silicon room at the HOA2 Arts and Crafts Center.
PREREQUISITES – An interest in preserving and expanding your family history.
COURSE DESCRIPTION - Two 75-minute sessions over 2 weeks.
The first session is a beginner’s walk-thru of Family Search and Find a Grave websites, how they are organized, what they do well, some limitations, and some things I have learned. Included are screen shots showing how information is organized. In the second session I will login to each site and walk you thru how to move around on the sites and how you find what you’re looking for. For the second session, I would like each student to bring the full name, full birth date, full death date or as much information as you have about one deceased ancestor (grandparent or earlier) that we can search for.
COURSE MATERIALS - Have a personal Flash drive for transporting files between the classroom and home.
