MyHeritage Announces New Free Online "Introduction to Genealogy" Course

 I received this from Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage today:


I’m so excited to tell you that MyHeritage has just launched our first-ever full-length online course: Introduction to Genealogy, hosted by yours truly :)

The course is a natural extension of what we’ve been building with the MyHeritage Knowledge Base: a free, comprehensive educational resource on genealogy. The course contains detailed lessons from a top-notch panel of experts providing a strong foundation in family history research. It’s intended for people who are new to genealogy or who started in the past and are looking to pick it up again.

The Introduction to Genealogy course is hosted on the Knowledge Base, and like everything else there, it’s free to all. Simply register to gain access to all the course materials and to track your progress as you move through the course.

The course focuses on 3 main areas:

  • Family trees
  • Historical records and research
  • DNA testing for genealogy
Each section is divided into chapters and lessons that cover a wide range of topics, tools, and strategies for conducting family history research. The 40 lessons sometimes include short assignments and additional materials to help you practice and absorb what you’ve learned. You’ll also find quizzes to test your knowledge at various points along the way. You’ll be able to move at your own pace and track your progress as you go.

I invite you to check it out and share it far and wide. It’s the perfect way to introduce all the budding genealogists you know to the world of family history! You can read our blog post announcement here.


Disclosure:  I receive a complimentary subscription to MyHeritage, and have received other material consideration in past years.  I uploaded my autosomal DNA raw data to their DNA product.  This does not affect my objective analysis of MyHeritage products.
