The Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, has announced its free family history classes and webinars for November 2017. Participants can attend in person or online.

New classes include how to research Swiss, Norwegian, and Canadian immigration records. There are also classes on the FamilySearch Family Tree; using the FamilySearch Catalog effectively; learning how to index in much-needed foreign languages such as Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, and French; and searching specific sources for other countries. Some classes are also in Spanish. See the full schedule below. Mark your calendars for events you want to join so you don’t forget.

Online classes are noted on the schedule as webinars. Webinar attendees need to click the link next to the class title at the scheduled date and time to attend the class online. Those attending in person simply go to the room noted. Invite your family and friends. All class times are in mountain standard time (MST).

If you are unable to attend classes in person or online, most sessions are recorded and can be viewed later online at your convenience. To access these, go to the archive for Family History Library classes and webinars.
