Genealogy: Getting Started

  • Have you decided to trace your family history but are unsure where to begin?
  • Are you new to genealogy and wondering what to do next?
  • Do want to learn how others approach genealogical research?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, the links provided on this page may be helpful to you. I have gathered some 20 Free Genealogy/ Family History courses from groups such as FamilySearch,, National Genealogical Society (US), Society of Genealogists (UK) or the (US) National Archives might be of interest. These represent some of the world’s most reputable genealogical groups & professionals. All of these links & sites are geared towards the genealogical ‘new-comer’.

Hopefully they will give you added confidence and help you move forward with greater success.

Should you know of other places & information we ought to include on our list, please use our contact page to send them along for inclusion! I will update the listings and links as I encounter new materials.

…and as always, your shares, likes, etc. are most appreciated.
