Description

If you have ancestors who immigrated to the United States, this course is for you. From finding immigration records to learning which ship your ancestors arrived on, you’ll learn it all!

In this course, you'll learn all about how to trace your immigrant ancestors, from their departure from the old country to their new life as US citizens.

This one-week course is designed to help you quickly jump-start your work on the class topic. The course materials take about two hours to complete. This course is self-led and does not contain any graded exercises, but an instructor is available to answer any questions you have via the Discussion Board. In the time it takes to watch a movie, you'll give your research skills a huge boost, and come away with new tools and techniques that you can use immediately.

Note: Unlike other Family Tree University courses that begin on a set date, this course begins as soon as you register! You'll have immediate access for 7 days. For those 7 days, you'll be able to interact on the message boards, ask questions of the instructor, and read or view all course materials. All course materials are also available for download in the course, so you can keep a copy of everything in case you don't have time to go through everything during your 7 days of access.
