Source Citations Course From Family Tree University

I am very excited that my first course for Family tree University starts on Monday February 23.   “Source Citations for Regular People” walks you through the basics of creating a source citation for genealogical research. I hope to see you in class!

Here is a teaser from the email that was sent out on Wednesday February 18th from Tyler Moss, Online Editor of Family Tree University.  

Source Citations can strike fear into the heart of genealogists. We know we need to use source citations, and how important they are to our research and for those who come after us, yet the thought of creating one from scratch can give you cold chills.

In this course you will learn the whole source documentation process, as well as study examples for all types of sources. Soon your fears will fly away, as citing courses becomes just a part of your genealogy routine.

This course is open to anyone interested in citing sources. Shannon Combs-Bennett will be available to answer all of your questions. See syllabus here »
 What you'll learn:
Why source citations are important to your genealogy research
Key elements of a source citation
What the different types of source citations are and how to write them
How to create templates for future citations
And so much more!
