This two week class is part workbook and part class exercises. The workbook describes types of records and types of citations. The student will have practice in using their own collections to write source citations for facts found to back up their own research.

Family History Research depends on learning a standard body of skills. Among them are (1) collecting evidence that your search reflects facts and (2) that repeatable searches can bring those facts back to view. The way we show the evidence trail is by citing record sources.

This course will help you write structured source citations which follow Genealogic Proof Standard (GPS) conventions.

A researcher may also want to create bibliographic notes and references. This class will include writing footnotes, endnotes and appendices that meet GPS standards.

As part of the learning process, this course will present you with skill building exercises that point out how to write references from online databases, archival records, family collections, media and other sources.

The Tuition is $36. Registration will open in August. Enrollment is limited..and registration will close when the course is full. If you have questions, just ask.
