The course is a natural extension of what weíve been building with the MyHeritage Knowledge Base: a free, comprehensive educational resource on genealogy. The course contains detailed lessons from a top-notch panel of experts providing a strong foundation in family history research. Itís intended for people who are new to genealogy or who started in the past and are looking to pick it up again.

The Introduction to Genealogy course is hosted on the Knowledge Base, and like everything else there, itís free to all. Simply register to gain access to all the course materials and to track your progress as you move through the course.
The course focuses on 3 main areas:
Each section is divided into chapters and lessons that cover a wide range of topics, tools, and strategies for conducting family history research. The 40 lessons sometimes include short assignments and additional materials to help you practice and absorb what youíve learned.
