Classes are offered throughout the year, with an especially rich offering during the Open House in the spring when the GFO hosts nine days of classes--all free and open to the public. Classes in the past have provided information about beginning genealogy; using Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, and other popular websites; understanding and making the best use of the GFO Library resources, DNA, photo editing, organizing your research, and many more.

Beginner's Boot Camp
Join Laurel Smith at the GFO for a day of beginning genealogy. There will be sessions about the census, vital records, immigration and naturalization, discussions about genealogy software and database use, organizing your research and more — all geared toward beginners.
Bring a sack lunch so the discussion can continue while we eat. GFO members may attend for free, non-members $20 at the door. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops, but it is not required. Please let us know if you plan to attend by sending a message to RSVP@gfo.org. The handouts will be emailed in advance.
