FamilySearch Expands Free Online Learning Opportunities

FamilySearch has announced an expanded array of free online learning opportunities for genealogists.

Among other efforts FamilySearch recently "worked with the Mid-Continent Public Library in Independence, Missouri to record and post 12 classes. These classes are available on both and the Midwest Genealogy Center’s site. Such collaboration benefits everyone involved, according to Darin Hakes with FamilySearch Community Services."

Midwest Genealogy Center librarian Janice Schultz stated, “The online classes allow people to attend no matter where they live,” Schultz said. “It helps us achieve our mission of educating genealogists. We have received many positive comments about these classes.”

This blogger is honored to be following Schultz as Chair of the Genealogy Committee of the History Section of the American Library Association.
