Genealogy               606030          T          1:00pm-3:00pm            January 11 - May 24, 2011          $40            REGISTER

The PBS special "Who Do You Think You Are" has caused an unprecedented renewal of interest in Family History and Genealogy.  This class will help you understand the difference between those two subjects, and how they apply to you and those who came before you.  You will learn how to access information from a plethora of sources, available both online through in-class instruction and at a variety of Bay Area repositories during field trips.  The most important aspect of our class is sharing information with each other, which leads to help with our problems and to discovering new ways of keeping track of the seemingly unending stream of information generated by research in Family History and Genealogy.  We are particularly nurturing to beginners. If you have any questions about the applicability of this class to your particular goals, please contact the instructor, Marcia Holstrom, at geogrammy@gmail.com.
