But, now the Boston University has set up a very interesting online course, only 4 weeks! This sounds like something I can do right now.
The course is called "Genealogical Essentials" - this is what they say on their website:
"Boston University’s four-week, online course in Genealogical Essentials is designed specifically for genealogy enthusiasts who seek to improve their research skills and develop a better understanding of best practices in the field"
- Define specific genealogical concepts and terms
- Effectively locate and search public records
- Optimize their search techniques for online research
This 4 weeks "Genealogical Essentials" serves as excellent preparation for Boston University's Certificate Program in Genealogical Research" - their 15 weeks course might also be of interest later.
Bur first we are cruising across the Atlantic to Florida.....
