USA | Texas | Dallas - June 29, July 1/6/8. Legacy Family Tree classes at Brookhaven College in Farmers Branch (Dallas).

The case study will include background information on an individual or family and copies or abstracts of additional genealogical records. During class, students will use Heritage Quest, Family Search, and other free internet websites to solve the case study. Students will enter the data and sources in Legacy. After solving the case study, students will document their hypothesis of proof. All of the exercises involve actual problems encountered by genealogists and represent various geographical areas in the United States. This class is scheduled June 29 – July 8, 2010. This class will meet twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00 p.m. – 4:20 p.m. Contact Glenn Kinkade for more information.
