Peer Study Groups

Study groups are a type of classes that revolve around a specific subject. The group members work together to define and explore research problems without any preconceived notions or predetermined answers. The primary objective of these groups is to facilitate learning and development by sharing research and insights. After three weeks, the coordinator collects and synthesizes the information. In most cases, an instructor assumes the role of the coordinator.

Interactive Lecture Series

Learn the specific tools of the genealogical process: An Interactive Lecture delivers more than valuable genealogy. By adding an experiential component, it will demonstrate how to use the lecture material. As such, the Interactive Lectures will incorporate lecture interspersed with hands-on opportunities to do and to interact.


Courses for download feature on demand-self-paced lessons in workbook format. Each workbook has detailed source documentation, readings, and assignments. They are text-based, sequenced exercises for each genealogical topic.
