Family History Month Day 20: Education

There is a lot to learn about genealogy. And there are many places to learn from. 

There are in person classes through l local family history centers or genealogical societies. Web based classes, both free and paid, from places like Ancestry Academy, BYU, or Family Tree Magazine. Blog posts with up to date info and tips. Videos on YouTube. Books, especially good for specific topics or country research. Conferences that bring expert speakers to you. And pdf downloads from various websites.

You can find just about any information and educational materials online or in local libraries. So go take a look at all they have to offer. You will certainly benefit from not having to "reinvent the wheel" and figure things out the hard way. And if you have a great tip or trick, share it with the genealogy community.
