UNPUZZLING YOUR PAST - Using the Internet
This is the course you should start with - whether a beginning genealogist or a seasoned researcher. You won't believe what you've been missing until you begin using the most up-to-date methods I teach! Learn to locate free reliable records - many available only on the Internet – once you’re taught where to find them and how to use them to their full potential. Extensive Internet use. Students work on their own family research. Pat Ryan MCCSG

While the Internet is a magnificent tool for the 21st Century genealogist, I suspect we can all agree that it can be frustrating and, at times, overwhelming. Or do you continue to end up at sites that want money? Do you understand Wikis, Blogs, Podcasts, Webinars, ezines, Facebook, and Twitter AND how these FREE websites can help you further your family history research? Can you find the BEST of the BEST websites, dedicated to your specific area of research? This course offers hundreds of links, separated and easily searchable by YOUR area of interest! I have been compiling, monitoring, and tracking these sites for over three years so you rest assured you really will be pointed in the right direction. Most sites are free, many are obscure and not easily found, and some ‘official’ sites are pay-for-view or subscription based … but well worth the small cost. You will be amazed at what you can find, from your own home computer, any time you wish to search!! Completion of Unpuzzling Your Past and New would be MOST beneficial. Pat Ryan MCCSG
