Tuesday's Tip - Watch the FamilySearch Research Courses Videos

This week's Tuesday's Tip is to:  Watch and Use the FamilySearch Research Courses on video to add to your knowledge and skills.

The FamilySearch Learning Center has a set of over 300 Research Courses at https://familysearch.org/learningcenter/home.html.

On the left margin are finding aids to help the user select a Research Course by Place, Skill Level, Subject, Format, or Language.  The page above has links for selected courses, such as:

*  Most Popular Courses
*  New Courses
*  Research Tracks (for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced users).

There are at least 96 "5 Minute Genealogy" courses in several languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Korean)

The easiest way to find a course on a specific topic is to use the search field at the top of the page.  However, be aware that it will not find presenter's names...which was the first thing I tried!

These Research Courses are free to watch online, many can be downloaded to your computer, and many have syllabus materials in PDF format that can be downloaded and printed.
