South Carolina Genealogy Crash Course: Find Your Palmetto State Ancestors

Recently I was asked by Family Tree Magazine to be a panelist for their webinar about South Carolina genealogy resources. Being a closet wall flower I excepted right away. :) In addition to the Dead Librarian, Wevonneda Minis from GullahRoots and Christina Shedlock from Charleston Public Library will be available for questions and comments.

While the webinars are available for a fee I was surprised at the number of courses available. If you are working on a state or topic that you are not familiar with the $40.00 seems well worth it to me. There is one on New York State resources and I definitely need that one!

The webinars are all part of the FamilyTree University. Family Tree University is an online education program from the publishers of Family Tree Magazine. They provide online courses, independent study classes and webinars.

"Who do you think you are" has really higlighted the need to deal with state and subject experts when researching. Experts save you from looking for info that isn't there, if it is there where is it and how difficult or easy it is to get the info.

These courses help make you the expert.

The South Carolina class is Weds, April 20, at 7:00pm. Follow the link if you are interested in attending.
