FREE Webinar on Genealogy

In the latest FREE module from the Infopeople Academy  you will learn about how to research family information, vital statistics and information on specific genealogy topics.

People are interested in finding out about their ancestors and their family’s history for a variety of reasons. It could be a hobby, curiosity, medical or religion reasons or to prove heritage and cultural origin.  People often research this topic in much more detail than just names, dates, and events. Family historians try to find out life stories and interesting details about their ancestors, such as what color eyes they had, what kinds of jobs they worked, or if they were famous. They usually need to find corroborating documents such as birth, death, and marriage certificates. It is very likely that in your library you have been asked to help customers with all of these questions.   The course is taught by Francisca Goldsmith.
