Course Spotlight: Mother Russia: Research in the Countries of the Former Russian Empire and USSR

Wish to research, or help those who need to research, ancestral lines from what was known as the Russian Empire? It can seem a bit daunting. A different language, unique research methods, and multiple locations for record sets. The geographical context alone can seem overwhelming. So let the experts simplify and deliver. 

Mastering the Language. One of the daunting tasks of Russian research can be the language. This course is designed to help you gain experience and practice practical language skills for genealogists. Students will receive a packet of learning resources before the beginning of the course. This packet will contain all the tools and assignments you need to gain a baseline understanding of the Russian alphabet necessary for this course.

A module on Russian History, Geography, and Culture. Before beginning the course, students will also be given access to a 90-minute learning experience, including videos, reading, and handouts. This module will expose students to the important history, geography, and culture that will help them get the most out of the classroom instruction.

The full schedule for this course, faculty bios, and course details can be found here.
