Tuesday's Tip - Use FamilySearch Research Courses

This week's Tuesday's Tip is:  Use the collection of genealogy learning videos and presentations on the FamilySearch Research Courses page.

The introduction to this page says:

"FamilySearch offers a variety of free classes online and in person to help you discover your family tree. Whether you are just beginning your family history research or are an experienced genealogist, you can learn something new. These classes are taught by genealogy research consultants at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, as well as experts from around the world."

There are over 120 video presentations available.  Some of them can be downloaded to your computer and viewed at your leisure.  some of them have a syllabus available for downloading.

You can find videos dealing with:

*  England Beginning Research Series
*  Germany Research
*  Ireland Beginning Research Series
*  Italy Research
*  New Zealand Research
*  Poland Research
*  Mexico Research
*  Reading Handwritten Records Series
*  Research Principles and Tools
*  Russia Research
*  United States of America Research
*  Association of Professional Genealogists
*  Board for Certification of Genealogists
*  ICAPGEN: The International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists

If you live in an area where you don't have an opportunity to attend or hear quality genealogical speakers, these FamilySearch Research Courses provide an excellent education on selected research subjects.
