Don’t Have Time?  Not to Worry!
Most courses are under one hour in length and are presented in either a video or audio format.  A good number of presentations include slides or handouts to accompany the lecture.

Researching in Another Country?
Another very useful area to genealogists is a series of courses on foreign languages. These include Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Latin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Scandinavian Gothic, and Spanish. For example, there are five courses focusing on German:

  • German Script Tutorial
  • My Ancestors Are from Germany, and I Don’t Speak German!
  • Reading German Handwritten Records Lesson 1: Kurrent Letters
  • Reading German Handwritten Records Lesson 2: Making Words in Kurrent
  • Reading German Handwritten Records Lesson 3: Reading Kurrent Documents

NOTE:  The titles are taken directly from the FamilySearch website.  “Kurrent Letters” auf Deutsch ist “Modern Letters” in English.
