Open registration began today for the course, "Find Your Story: A Genealogy Course for Beginners," to be held at the Alabama Department of Archives and History on Mondays from 9 am to 12 pm at the archives from March 31 to April 21. If you have ancestors from Alabama, this will be a great opportunity to learn how to research them.
Through this course, participants will be given a solid foundation to craft an effective
research plan and learn valuable skills to help navigate the oftentimes overwhelming
world of genealogical research. Dupree will devote special attention to the wide variety
of resources available both online and in the ADAH’s extensive collections. Participants
will learn how to best use the Archives Research Room and its resources (including free
access to ancestry.com and Fold3) to begin to discover their past.
The course will be led by expert genealogist, Nancy Dupree, and participants will have an opportunity to trace their family history in the Alabama Department of Archives and History’s Research Room as well as have access to resources and research tools on site. For more information, see this press release.
