What to Expect
Over the 8-week course, registrants will learn proven research methods to root out their most elusive ancestors, as well as how to document research findings with reliable evidence.
For beginner and experienced genealogists alike, Foundations of Genealogy I is designed to equip researchers with the fundamental knowledge and expertise to develop new skills on their own, wherever their research may take them – whether online or in person at libraries and archives.
Class sessions will take place on Wednesdays from September 25 to November 13, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at HSP’s historic library in Center City, Philadelphia.
Note: class will be held on Tuesday, October 8, instead of Wednesday, October 9, due to the Yom Kippur holiday.
