Course Spotlight: Intermediate Foundations

Self-taught and unsure of your research gaps? Feeling a little rusty on your research skills after a long hiatus? Or perhaps you have completed a beginning course and are ready to sink your teeth into methodology and intermediate record sets? This course was developed specifically with you in mind.

In-depth Instruction Enhanced by Learning Assignments

During this course, students will be exposed to a unique blend of instruction on methodology and records. Methodology instruction will include topics such as DNA testing plans, conducting and planning research, and the Genealogical Proof Standard. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about finding and analyzing records on an intermediate level, including records in the areas of federal and local land, legal records, newspapers, and military research.

The course's multi-week format focuses on a couple of topics each week in live, interactive sessions via Zoom. Students work on assignments and projects on their own schedule throughout the week, pose questions in a closed Facebook group, and check their accuracy against a homework key before joining faculty at the next session for a homework review. To get the full benefit of this course, students should prepare to spend up to 10 hours per week to complete assignments.

Coordinated by Annette Lyttle, MA, the course faculty also includes Angie Bush, MS; Melina Daffin Henningfield, CG, CGL; Angela Packer McGhie, CG, FUGA; Nancy A. Peters, CG, CGL; Gena Philibert-Ortega, MA, MAR; Kimberly T. Powell; Judy G. Russell, JD, CG, CGL; Richard G. Sayre, CG, CGL, FUGA; Sara A. Scribner, CG; Michael L. Strauss, AG; and Cari A.
