Please enroll before the course begins. The course has filled up in the past.
The genealogy course for beginners
has been designed to teach students how to find and document their
relatives back through their great-grandparents. Emphasis is
placed on family resources, whole family research, and source
documentation. Further instruction is provided on how to find
original documents, how to do library research, and how to file
their research and store their documents.
The course includes a guided tour of the genealogical library on the second floor of the Central Brevard Library in Cocoa. The course also includes instructions in using the computer for research and the advantages of using genealogical software. Forms for recording findings are provided as are archival sheet protectors and ruled paper for recording notes.
This course was written by members of the Brevard Genealogical Society and is taught by them. It was first offered in 2005, during the winter and then later that summer.
Registration for the course includes
membership in the Brevard Genealogical Society. The greater portion
of dues is used to enlarge the genealogical library. Each year,
the Society spends over $2000.00 for books and other materials for
research and education.
