Genealogy 101 Course

The Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia will be giving holding an Introduction to Genealogy - a Course for Beginners starting in February 2015.
This course will be taught over eight weeks and will cover a wide range of topics. This course will provide beginners with a firm understanding of the methods and research tools available to genealogists in Nova Scotia.
The lecture will be instructed by Certified Genealogists Allan E. Marble, Ginny Clarke and Nathaniel Smith. There is a special rate for GANS members!
For more information please check out the detailed course outline that is available at the Genealogy 101 Course page. This course is for beginners but it would also be useful as a refresher for those who have been researching for years.
