New Format for GenClass!

GenClass will be experimenting with a new and improved format for its online Genealogy classes. Each class will be designed as an independent study where you work at your own pace on eight lessons (two lessons per week), and interact with your instructor via e-mail. Optional class chats may also be scheduled at the instructor's discretion.

All classes begin on the first of each month and end on the 28th of each month.

You'll still see different courses offered each month and upon registration/payment, you will receive an e-mail from GenClass confirming your registration. Lessons are sent via e-mail and the instructor will be available for the duration of the class to answer your questions also via e-mail.

Think of it as having your own personal genealogy tutor!

The GenClass instructors are excited about this new format.

If there's a course you've thinking about taking, now is the perfect time! Click here to see the classes offered in January and February.

Genealogy Gems Podcast: Family History Made Easy

Recently, I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Lisa Louise Cooke, host of the GenealogyGems Podcast for her Family History Made Easy Podcast. I got a chance to talk about my reasons for researching my family history and what I've learned along the way.
