This course takes the learned knowledge from Genealogy I and applies it to an actual probate case from Harris County. Don’t let that be misleading, the research trails extend well into other parts of Texas. Charlie Gardes, a forensic genealogist, will lead you through the maze of the Texas inheritance system and public records to solve the case. Learn how to work with courthouses and libraries long distance, in addition to utilizing the Clayton Library, Center for Genealogical Research here in town.
Required: In addition to course tuition, each student will be required to obtain a minimum of a 2-month subscription to Ancestry.com, approximately $60-99 depending on the plan you choose. Additionally, if the student does do not have the textbook from Genealogy I, $40 payable to instructor is due on first day of class for a copy.
Prerequisite: This is NOT beginning genealogy. Completion of Genealogy I is not a requirement, but students must have familiarity, if not experience, using more than census records and on-line databases. Must have very good skills with Windows, including navigating and using the mouse. This is not an entry-level class for beginners with no, or little, computer experience.
This is an 8 week course.
