The classes are designed for a broad audience.  Anyone new to genealogy and family history research will get a good foundation on how to work on genealogy.    For those experienced in genealogy, these classes will provide an excellent refresher course in core research principals.  There will also be instruction on how to do advanced research.

During the classes, participants will learn how to establish research goals and determine a starting point and organizing techniques.  Class members will also learn techniques for interviewing elders, filling out pedigree and family group sheets, internet research while accessing vital, courthouse and cemetery records, census records and researching your soldier.

Every week different WVGS members will provide instruction in their specific area of expertise.  These individuals love genealogical research and want to share their skills and knowledge with all class participants.  Participants have a rare opportunity to take advantage of these local experts.
