More Online Learning Available: FamilySearch.org
The Family History Library has long offered courses to those interested in pursuing their family history. However, for those of us not local to Salt Lake City, Utah, participating has been, well, a bit difficult.
They now offer their courses online in the following areas:
* England Beginning Research
* Germany Research
* Ireland Research
* Italy Research
* New Zealand Research
* Poland Research
* Principios básicos para la investigación genealógica en Hispanoamérica (México)
* Reading Handwritten Records Series
* Research Principles and Tools
* Russia Research
* U.S. Research
Each option is broken down into a number of lessons which features a video and a course outline for each. Since some of the more recent additions are very general, they make good starting points for the beginning genealogist and are a great refresher for the more experienced family historian. In addition, many Canadian families came to Canada from other places. Perhaps one of these lessons will help you locate more information on the ancestor who immigrated here?
