Family Tree University Power Courses are designed to provide a concentrated dose of genealogy education on a single topic. Students have a week to go through approximately two hours of course material. In less time than it would take to drive round-trip from New Haven to Bridgeport, you’ll boost your research and leave with new tips and tricks to help you find your ancestors. This course is self-led and does not contain any graded exercises, but instructors are available to answer any and every question you may post on the Discussion Board.
Whether your ancestor was a New Haven native, a dock worker in Bridgeport or of the Hartford upper crust, many genealogists can trace their Native American, Dutch, English, Italian and Irish roots back to this New England state. Both newcomers to Connecticut genealogy and seasoned veterans will discover helpful tools, sources and strategies to find their Constitution State ancestors.
Note: Unlike other Family Tree University courses that begin on a set date, our power courses begin 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.
