Are you interested in a free online genealogy research class?

+16 votes

I just started a MOOC (Massive Open Online Class) through FutureLearn: Genealogy: Researching Your Family Tree. I've tried online classes before, through Coursera, and been disappointed, but I'm really loving the way this class is set up.

The class is taught by Tahitia McCabe, who is an American now living in Scotland, where she teaches genealogy at the University of Strathclyde. She is also a course leader for the University of Strathclyde's MSc in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies, which is also an online program.

Since the program just started, I think it's not too late to join. Also, I'm not the only WikiTreer in the class. I've already encountered at least three, two of whom are in my study group of 30 students, so there could actually be many more.

What are you waiting for? Come join in the fun!

I'm also doing this course and agree that is structured very well. I tried to do a history course through FutureLearn and there was so much reading,I didn't survive beyond the first week.  This one so far at least is divided into smaller chunks and it is much easier to do a bit here and there.
I am also taking the class,I just shared the links for databases
Cool, JD. Thanks for posting those links. I'm sure they'll be useful for lots of us WikiTreers.
That was one of the main reasons I took this course to learn about databases I didn't know about.
