SGS Beginning Genealogy
This class includes four weekly sessions online with a fifth, optional session in person at the SGS library. The class covers how to successfully conduct, organize, and record research for your genealogy. How to begin? How to evaluate evidence? What are the best sources? Where are the records--online and off? What can DNA tell us?

Start your journey on a foundation of good habits and best practices.  Participation will help you develop great genealogy skills.  The course finishes with a list of favorite sources for additional learning and an optional meet-up with a personal research session at the SGS library.
Weeks 1-4 will meet virtually and consist of lecture, discussion, and workshop.
Week 5 (optional) includes a library tour and one-on-one research assistance.
Class fee $80 (SGS members $60)
