Class description: If you have been using Ancestry.com for a while now and want to take your researching to the next level and get more out of your subscription, this course is for you! In this course, we will expand more on some topics covered in the “Beginning Ancestry” course as well as narrow our focus in on specific topics, including but not limited to learning how to verify family members before “adding” them to your trees, learning tricks when it comes to researching our immigrant relatives with those trickier last names, as well as learning that there are indeed times Ancestry isn’t always correct!
Note: If you are taking this class, you are welcome to bring a laptop to work within your own Ancestry.com account.
