I give a free class around the Raleigh-Durham area called "Genealogy 101: Having fun with family history."
People often run into a frustrating roadblock the first time they try to do genealogical research online. My class will help people get past this initial obstacle. I use a projector to demonstrate how to do effective searches online and also explain basic principles of genealogical research. By the end of the presentation, the attendees should be able to go home, log on, and find some information about their family history that they did not know before. The presentation lasts 40 minutes, though I can also do a 20-minute abbreviated version.
If you are interested in a free beginner-level genealogy class for your organization or community, please contact me.
