INTRODUCTION TO GENEALOGY RESEARCH
Fri, 6:00 - 9:00 pm, 4/9/21 & 4/16/21
6 hours, $80.00
Find your ancestors in online databases, and learn where to look for them in brick-and-mortar NYC archives: births, deaths, marriages, ship manifests, military, tax and voting records. Come with a name, any documents you already have, and your questions. The specific needs of attendees will guide presentation of the material—your questions will be answered. This course will provide the primary tools and introduction to how to begin to search your own family's genealogy, with a special emphasis on topics relevant to descendants of people from Africa, Caribbean islands, Italy, Greece, etc.
Though the course is general for the first session, note that the second session of the course, upon the group's input from the first class, can be extended to individualized backgrounds and demographics.
This is a fully online course. You will need Internet access and a free registered zoom account.
