The Family History Library and the Research Specialists of the United States and Canada Reference team invite you to a free, never before offered, week-long seminar focused exclusively on U.S. research. The seminar, which will be held October 12th – 16th, 2015, is perfect for beginning and intermediate genealogists interested in learning about U.S. records, FamilySearch resources, and Family History Library collections.
Come and spend a week at the world renowned Family History Library learning from our expert staff genealogists on how to effectively use the FamilySearch Catalog, Historical Records, and Research Wiki. Explore such topics as cemetery, census, church, immigration, land, military, naturalization, newspaper, probate, and vital records. Learn more about African-American and American Indian research. And discover new techniques, strategies, and methodology to apply to your genealogical research problems.
Seating is limited to 50 participants, so be sure to register early to secure a spot. To register for the seminar visit the FamilySearch Wiki and search for the topic United States Research Seminar. Registration instructions are found under the subheading Registration. Each participant will be provided a free spiral-bound syllabus containing all class handouts and materials.
