LESSON 1 OVERVIEW
Welcome to Lesson 1! I am SO excited that you've made the decision to join our class! Family history research is exhilarating like few other things - when you begin to imagine the lives of your grandparents, your great-grandparents, and on back, it is truly humbling to see the roots you came from. And when you match a person you've been looking for to a record about them, it is like finishing your own detective novel. And then immediately starting the next one. ;)
In this lesson we'll be tackling three major assignments. I'll show you how to:
- Download and begin filling in your ancestor information in our Family History Album spreadsheet
- Create an account at FamilySearch.org and begin building your "three generations" family tree
- Gather vitals data from your family tree and populate the rest of the spreadsheet
Ready to get started? Great! On to Assignment 1!
