Rooted: Genealogy 101 with the Historical Society of Pennsylvania

May 14, 2024
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Learning about your ancestral origins can be rewarding, but perhaps also a little overwhelming. What is the best way to approach the questions you have? How do you have confidence you’re “doing it right”?

This virtual course will assist entry-level and early intermediate genealogists in developing research skills, finding and evaluating historical records, and placing your people into the broader story of history. Successful case studies will walk you through how it’s done and what to expect, while breakout sessions will facilitate discussion and collaboration. Walk away rooted in correct principles and practical strategies for tracing your family history!

Rooted: Genealogy 101 will run for four Tuesday evenings (May 7, May 14, May 21, & May 28) from 6:30 PM to 8 PM on Zoom with additional asynchronous instruction. All sessions will be recorded and made available to registrants who cannot attend a class.

Note: This course will primarily cover skills and methodology for the 1800s and 1900s. Computer literacy and an Ancestry.com subscription are required.
