Answer: Working through the subject in an orderly manner and then practicing what I learned. It was more useful to me than all the genealogy conference classes I have attended over the years.2. Is there anything we can do to improve the online experience?
Answer: I think I would have liked a Skyped conference call with other students. Especially when we had online discussions. I missed the interaction of getting to know what the other students were going through and what they learned. Sometimes it's good to bounce ideas off of others too.3. Would you recommend this course to a friend? Why or why not?
Answer: Yes, I would strongly recommend this class to others. It works for the beginner as well as the seasoned genealogist. I wish I had this type of class and focus when I was beginning to do genealogy.There is one last thing I wanted to report on regarding this class. I took the opportunity to try out a new organizing system for keeping track of my digital records. I mentioned it in my "SLCC Genealogy Course: Post #5 - Organization" blog post. I tried out Lisa Louise Cook's method for organizing your hard drive. She's not the only one that uses this method. I see this file system used as examples all over the place. After using this filing method I have to say I don't like it. There are just to many folder to drill through to find anything. I prefer having a folder just for one family and then putting all their records inside that folder. So during the next month I am going to reorganize the filing system I created for this course. I'm not sure about the file naming method she uses either so I have to do more thinking on that part.
