Course Review - Descendency Research @FamilySearch

Thanks to someone posting on Twitter a while ago I found out that there are some FREE courses at

I decided to try one of them out today, and I was pleasantly surprised!

I did the Decendency research, Lesson #1 (of 3)

It was a video of someone talking, and explaing what decendency research is, why you may want to do it, and how to get started.  It was easy to listen to, and his stories kept my attention.  Now to those who are expert genealogists it will be way to basic for you, but for someone like me, I found it to be very informative.  It gave me some ideas of how I can change things up to try and work on decendents instead of ancestors.  I just might try that!

My only "complaint" was going to be that I couldn't print any of the information off from the video, but low and behold, I went back, and there are links to some written information I hadn't noticed.  Excellent!

So to anyone that hasn't looked there yet, I would highly recommend it.  I will be watching the rest of these for sure at time!
