FamilySearch Expands Online Learning Opportunities

  • 22 October 2010

Online learning on has been expanded recently and now includes 81 free lessons, enabling people anywhere in the world to access family history expertise any time.

The topics range from basic research to training on specific record types from specific countries and can be beneficial to both beginners and experienced researchers.

Most of the classes come from research consultants in the world-famous Family History Library in Salt Lake City, but FamilySearch is also now working with partners to broaden the pool of expertise. Mid-Continent Public Library in Independence, Missouri, is one such example; the two organizations recorded and posted 12 classes together.

Such collaboration benefits everyone involved, according to Darin Hakes with FamilySearch Community Services.

All of the classes can be accessed on by clicking on “Free Online Classes” on the home page.
