Women's History Month 2016: Tip #30 Learn

Learn Chalk Means Student Education And Subjects by Stuart Miles/Courtesy
What is your genealogical education plan? What are you doing this year to enhance your family history research?

We are lucky to have so many choices for our genealogical education. We have access to more information than ever before but it's what you do with it and how you incorporate it into your research habits that makes all the difference in the world.

Where can you seek out educational opportunities? Everywhere. Think in terms of webinars from Legacy Family Tree and the Southern California Genealogical Society. Need more ideas? See the calendar at GeneaWebinars. Take a course from The National Institute for Genealogical Studies. Read the great articles in Family Tree Magazine, In-Depth Genealogist, Internet Genealogy, and Your Genealogy Today. Listen to a podcast from the Genealogy Guys, Genealogy Gems or even the Gena and Jean Genealogy Journey. Go to a conference whether national or regional. There's a ton to choose from on the Conference Keeper website.

Don't forget the learning centers on websites like FamilySearch or And most commercial websites have great information on their blogs like GenealogyBank.

Did I miss other opportunities? You bet! But that's where you come in. Write down your goals and what you need to learn about your female ancestor and then go seek out that information.

Enjoy your discoveries!
