If you've taken several genealogy courses, but are not finding the records/data you need to move your family history forward, this class is for you. This class is NOT a how-to-do genealogy class; it for teaching you how to be more efficient and effective when you search the Internet for genealogical data. You will learn how to create more effective database search criteria, find new research resources, and weed out unreliable information. During class, access will be provided to several subscription genealogy databases, databases available through Duke University Library and several free databases. Each student is expected to understand genealogical research methods. Handouts will be posted on the class website prior to each class for the students to download and print.
