Names And Dates Are Only The Start Of Your Family Tree.

Branch Out And Truly Get To Know Your Ancestors.

Family is important. That’s why you have so many questions. Especially as you get older, and the people who might have had some answers for you are no longer around.

You’ve put together a bit of a family tree. But the truth is, it’s looking a bit sad. It’s a winter tree at the moment. All branches, waiting to be fully realized.

Names and dates tell you the very basic story. They don’t tell you about dreams and hopes and hobbies and careers. Your ancestors were much more than a name and collection of dates.

It’s time to meet the real people that you came from. You’ve always wondered.

Growing Up On The Western Frontier.

Falling In Love During The Civil War.

Every Single Name On Your Family Tree Has As Many Stories To Tell As You Do.

When you look deeper and get to know the people behind the names, the real stories come out.

You’ll find snippets of information that make you need to know more.

Take Your Research To The Next Level.

This course is designed to guide your research so you can find out the real stories that make up your past.

This course walks you through non-traditional genealogy sources, so you can refine your research skills and be sure that you are getting the full picture.

We’ll look at using Google Books to locate books on your ancestor’s community. Locating County “Brag Books” and church books. Understanding how College and University Archives can be useful in your search. Utilizing historical fiction to better understand the world your ancestors lived in.

The full picture. Give life to your ancestors. Because they lived full lives.
