Fall Genealogy Class Starts on Tuesday

The fall session of Genealogy Research at Cuesta College begins on Tuesday at 9 AM. This session will be on genealogy principles and US research. It will be aimed at beginning and intermediate researchers. As of yesterday morning there were 19 registered. That leaves 5 more workstations available.

The formal part of the class is from 10:00 to 12:00 but we have the computer lab scheduled from 9:00 to 12:50. Parking is usually much better before 9 AM. The time before and after the formal presentation can be used for consultation, for Internet research or for exploring RootsMagic4.

For the first week we will make sure everyone is signed up for this blog, discuss the basics of family history research, complete a pedigree chart in RootsMagic, complete a search exercise in Google, and take a little quiz.

Students should bring a flash drive, a public library card, and any information you need to login to your personal email account from a remote location. If you already have data in a computerized genealogy program, export it to your flash drive as a GEDCOM file or save it as a RootsMagic file and bring it to class.

Online registration is now available at:
