Join Laurel Smith at the GFO for a day of beginning genealogy. There will be sessions about the census, vital records, discussions about genealogy software and database use, organizing your research, using Ancestry.com, and more — all geared toward beginners — but basic computer skills are a prerequisite.
All communications are done via email, and you must be able to download and print the class notes. Bring a sack lunch, snacks, and a beverage so you can keep going as the class does.
GFO members may attend for free, non-members $20.
Here's what attendees are saying: "Boot Camp was rocking, wow do I regret not having it before I started my work . . . such a good teacher . . . a marathon that was time well-spent . . . informative and motivational . . . with humor and positive energy . . . more than exceeded my expectations."
Member or not, please let us know if you plan to attend and REGISTER ONLINE. Registration closes on August 16, 2019. A short assignment and a link to the class notes will be emailed on Sunday, August 18.
