I will be teaching a virtual, online only, Beginning Genealogy Class with the Southern California Genealogical Society. Our last virtual class had over 200 attendees! We will have online handouts.

You will learn how to begin genealogy research, how to stay organized, where to look, what to do when you find records, and we will cover both paper and digital approaches to research. Excellent for any beginner or intermediate genealogy researcher. This class will be virtual, online only.
