Creating an Individualized Genealogical Educational Plan.
Margaret McMahon

MAY 22, SUNDAY, 3 pm
  • Whether your goal is to become a professional genealogist, to better understand an ancestor’s life or break down your own brick walls, your own educational plan can help you focus on what you want to learn.
  • Having an individualized education plan clarifies your goals as well as providing accountability.
  • Explore the types of resources that are available to use, and how to put together your own plan.
