FamilySearch, a service provided by the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, is now making its popular genealogy classes available at FamilySearch.org for FREE. Anyone anywhere in the world can access them for when it is convenient for YOU. While the classes have been offered on-site in Salt Lake City for years, you had to be living in the area or visiting to take part in them. Offering the classes on-line will allow many more people to take advantag of them.
“Most people do family history whenever they can fit it in their busy lives, on evenings, holidays, weekends, and so forth. Whether you are a beginner or experienced researcher, you can choose subjects of interest to you from the available classes and watch them anytime and anywhere,” said FamilySearch Community Services Manager Diane Loosle.
According to Loosle, the free online classes are one part of the growing number of tools FamilySearch is building for its online patrons.
All of the classes can be accessed from the Family Search site www.familysearch.org by clicking on Free Online Classes on the home page. Included in the classes offered are:
- England Beginning Research Series
- Germany Research Series
- Ireland Research Series
- Italy Research Series
- Research Principles and Tools

- United States Research
