American Genealogical Studies: The Basics

I have taken another step on my journey to becoming a certified genealogist.  I completed my my first course in the National Genealogical Society's Home Study.

In this beginner's course I got a great overview of :

Family Groupsheets and Pedigree Charts
What is involved in Creating a Research Plan
How to cite Home Sources
Whether a family story is a Theory or Hypothesis
Help with Interviewing Relatives
Connecting with Social Media

Citing a Source is my biggest challenge and so I've ordered my next course called Guide to Documentation and Source Citations

Until next time, happy hunting!
