"Both beginners and seasoned genealogists who wish to learn more should join us for an intensive genealogy course. This course will focus on locating, collecting, analyzing and assessing the value and accuracy of records that are vital to genealogical research. Each topic will get into the fine details of genealogical research which are often missed, even by practiced genealogists.
