AmeriCymru Genealogy Course

Tracing your family history can be an overwhelming and confusing task and Welsh genealogy offers some hurdles all its own. We're very pleased to announce that AmeriCymru will soon be offering an online course specifically in Welsh genealogy for beginners with professional genealogist and instructor, Darris Williams.

This upcoming course will help you understand the genealogy research process, how to start your own family history search, where to find and fill in your own family tree, what do with the information you find and how to know whether it's correct, and how to put it all together.

The course will start some time in December and will be conducted in the Genealogy Group on AmeriCymru. It will be a paid course ( details TBA ) and persons wishing to register an interest in enrolling can comment on the Group wall ( or in Comments below ) to reserve a place.
