Longmont Genealogical Society
Genealogy Classes for 2024



The Longmont Genealogical Society’s goal is to promote an interest in genealogy research. Learning about your family history can be one of the most interesting and rewarding hobbies you’ll ever find. Ever wonder about your ancestor’s arrival in this country? Are there stories that have been passed down in your family for which you would like to learn the truth? Genealogy research can answer your questions. And, learning about best practices and new techniques can make it even more enjoyable.

Join with us for these 2024 classes and make this a fun filled year of family discovery!

Title: Using RootsMagic to Correct your Ancestry or Family Search

Description: How confident are you that your ever-growing family tree does not contain obvious errors?  While Ancestry and Family Search provide many ways to add content, neither provides tools to assist with finding obvious errors.  RootsMagic is a low-cost genealogy tool that can be used to locate many types of errors in your family tree.  This class will explain and demonstrate how using RootsMagic can result in a much cleaner, more accurate family tree.

Title: Time to Start Researching Your Ancestors Today!

Description: Have you been thinking about finding your great-grandparents or another ancestor? When did they immigrate and from where? Were there illnesses I should be aware of? How do I find old newspaper articles? How much does this cost? What is Ancestry? If any of these questions have crossed your mind, or you would just like to “dip your toe” in this hobby, this is the class for you. We’ll start with the basics, move slowly through the research steps, show lots of examples and at the end, you will know if you want to pursue this..
