Ancestry Academy's online course library continues to grow! Come check out these four new courses taught by experts in the genealogy community:
Written in Stone: Researching in Cemeteries, by Amy Johnson Crow, CG℠
In this course, you'll learn how to approach cemetery records, use what you gather in your research, and explore many options you may have never thought of to make the most of any cemetery visit. Amy will discuss tombstone inscriptions, symbols, military burials, and even how to take the best pictures when you're on your visit to your ancestor's final resting place.
Effective Searching for Canadian Records, by Lesley Anderson
This course is a basic overview of how to use Ancestry’s Canadian website, Ancestry.ca, but there are many useful hints for anyone starting out on Ancestry no matter which country you're researching in. Topics include family trees, hints, and DNA, which cross a broad spectrum of other Ancestry websites besides Ancestry.ca. Who knows? You may also discover that you have a family member or distant cousin who once lived in or visited Canada.
Texas: Researching the Lone Star State, by Kelvin Meyers
Understanding the records of a particular area will help you be a better researcher. In this course, you will get a feel for the wide range of records that are available to you in this state of 254 counties and over 171 million acres of land. By the end of the course, you will be more confident with researching your Texas ancestors.
MyCanvas: Creating Family History Keepsakes, by Lorilee Wagner (FREE)
This course will teach you how to use the tools and features of the MyCanvas program. You will learn how to create and customize your own family history books and family tree posters. This is the most flexible online publishing program, enabling you to create photo books, posters, and calendars the way you want, not the way the program dictates.
