New Online Genealogy Classes

A new opportunity for online genealogy classes on a variety of subjects is offered at http://www.genclass.com/. The setup is described as:

Each four-week class includes a detailed course curriculum, online class meetings and more, for the low price of $29.95.

Each Class has its own web site. After signing up and paying with a credit card, you will receive a password to access your class web site. When the class starts you will find the first two lessons to download in the 'Digital Library' of your class web site.The teacher will cover two lessons a week. You can work at your own pace, treating your class as an independent study course. Each week an additional two lessons will be made available for downloading.

The classes scheduled for January and February are listed at http://www.genclass.com/schedule.htm. You can click on each class listed for the course description, teacher biography and the course outline. Genea-blogger Lisa Alzo is teaching the "Jump Start Your Genealogy," "Eastern European Genealogy Research" and "Writing Your Family History" classes.

If you are just beginning your research, or want a refresher, these online classes sound like a cost-efficient and relatively quick means to improve your research skills and knowledge.

Hat tip to blogger Schelly Dardashti (Tracing the Tribe) for this information.
