Beginning Genealogy Class

I am teaching a Beginning Genealogy Class with the County of Los Angeles Parks & Recreation Department. The class is virtual. there are three dates for the class; January 16, February 13 & March 6 all in the first quarter of 2021. All classes are the same, you only need to attend one class so pick the date that works for you!

You can sign up here through the Parks & Rec Dept of LA County. You must create an account with LA Parks & Rec. Hope to see you there!

Learn the beginning steps of doing your own genealogy, the research into your family tree. Who are your ancestors? Whether your ancestors are recent immigrants, or came to America generations ago, you can learn their story, which helps you understand your story.
