Genealogy 101: A Course in Beginning Genealogy
Genealogy is an adventure in researching your family’s history. This session will aid the beginner in starting the process and enjoying the journey.
  1. Identify what you already know.
    This will include home sources, oral interviews of older relatives, obituaries, appropriate charts and forms
  2. Filling in the blanks.
    Pedigree analysis will aid us in deciding where we need to go next.
  3. Learning how to obtain and read a record.
    After learning of the many ways to search for and obtain a record, we will analyze the information it may contain.
  4. Organizing what you have gathered.
    Organizing and preserving our data is essential. An overview of computer programs specifically for genealogy will be demonstrated, different filing systems, sharing information with online databases, and leaving a legacy for future generations will be included.
Also on Wednesday, August 16 Donna Potter Phillips, Vice President of Washington State Genealogical Society and Virginia Forney Majewski, President of Washington State Genealogical Society offer Free Society Management Classes.
