Introduction to Genealogy
What are your roots? What is your heritage? How long has your family lived in Bedford or Bloomington or Indiana? This course will give you the skills to answer these and many other questions about your family’s past. You will take a scientific approach to the traditional record search methods. The class will involve DNA samples and analysis to compare your genes to a large database. You’ll learn all about search methods and search engines, available software, and filing systems. We’ll also explore software and hardware that will enable you to print pedigree charts using different styles and formats.
