Genealogy can be a fun and rewarding hobby. But there is so much information out there, so where do you begin? This course will get you started on online techniques and help you to get started on your family history. We will also incorporate how to conduct oral interviews to record your history, how to utilize the online databases and how to organize all the information once you have it!
This class will not only look at genealogy and family history, it will also be hands-on and students will conduct their own oral history interviews and create a family tree. We will also be examining the major themes in American history that coincide with the census years and how that could affect the accuracy of information.
