A New FREE Educational Opportunity - The US-REC Study Group

Over the last several weeks, you may have seen references to a new educational opportunity available for FREE! Thanks to Valerie Brown Elkins of Family Cherished and Tonia Kendrick of Tonia's Roots, we now have the US-REC Study Group, focusing on American records.

With a concept similar to the successful ProGen Study Group, and using Facebook as the platform for discussion among the group members, it promises to be an outstanding way to learn more about the records that are available for U.S. research. The texts for the course are The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy by Val D. Greenwood and The Source: A Guidebook of American Genealogy by Loretta D.  Szucs and Sandra H. Luebking.

Designed for intermediate-level genealogists, the group will study two chapters each month and have a related practical assignment. The program will last approximately 15 months.

The US-REC Study Group still has a few spaces left in this first group of participants, but if you are interested, send me an email and I'll ask for information to be sent!

I'm looking forward to participating in this group and I hope you'll join me!
