Event description

Description

HSP presents a week-long genealogy course designed to explore the records and repositories available for researching ancestors in Pennsylvania. This is a complete “how to” course, training you to use the resources available at HSP and elsewhere to uncover your family’s story!

The week's agenda includes scheduled free times to conduct your research, so you can put your new knowledge into action with guidance from course instructors and HSP staff.

This course is designed for all levels—from beginners to experienced family historians—with a curriculum that takes participants through three primary questions:

  • What records are available?
  • Where are the records located?
  • How do I decipher what I discover?

By the end of this course, you’ll have answers!

Enrollment will be limited to 40 persons on a first come, first enrolled basis. Take advantage of Early Bird rates until October 31, 2019; prices will increase on November 1!

No Refunds can be issued after July 3, 2020.

Schedule

Class sessions will take place from August 3 to August 7 from 8:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
