In this course, you'll learn all about how to use probate records to find your ancestors. Probate records are a tremendous source of genealogical information. Some family historians find probate records a little intimidating, though, and any don't realize that even poor ancestors may have left behind a probate file chock-full of valuable genealogy information.
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.
