As you may know, FamilySearch has been adding some outstanding classes online to help those who are not aware. Users may learn more about Russian, U.S., Italian, German, and British research, with more courses on the way. We have Spanish language research classes, and now we have also parnered with the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) to host online recordings of their recent Professional Genealogy Management track at this year's FGS conference.
To provide a little bit of background on my online class on Court Records, it was originally given to allow our education team to test a new product, MediaSite, that had been loaned or donated to our organization. I taught the class with this in mind, so for those of you who notice the gaping deficiencies of detail and exact date ranges for many of the records I discuss in the class, I do apologize.
Regarding the other classes recorded there, great pains were taken to provide the most efficient information needed, and I am especially delighted with the German Handwriting courses with Barbara Bell. My colleagues Darin Hakes, Chris Canfield, and Travis Jordan invested many, many hours in creating these courses, and Barbara did an outstanding job making the material incredibly easy to understand. As one who reads Current Schrift, I know how complex this task may be at times, and yet this outstanding team made this topic especially easy to understand. Well done! Check back every couple of months for more outstanding courses from this team!
