I love taking genealogy classes, especially in a classroom setting. It allows me to not only learn more about a subject that is important to me but also gives me the opportunity to exchange ideas with others interested in genealogy. So I was delighted to see that the Poway Adult School was offering a class on Internet Research for Family History. Too many times, in the past, however, their genealogy classes would be cancelled due to low enrollment.
Imagine my surprise and delight when I walked into the class (okay, a few minutes late) to find twelve other eager students already present. Twelve might not seem like a lot to you, however, typically there are 6 students in these classes. As we went around the class introducing ourselves, not only were there students of various ages -- 30's to mid to late 70's, but a majority of them had done a little research but desired some training on how to do it properly.
I am looking forward to learning more about research methods and to discussing tips and findings with my fellow classmates.
