The Family History Library’s Research Specialists invite you to their free week-long United States Seminar. The seminar, which will be held August 22nd – 26th, 2016, is perfect for beginning and intermediate genealogists interested in learning about U.S. regions and records, FamilySearch resources, and Family History Library collections.

Come and spend a week at the world renowned Family History Library learning from our expert staff genealogists on how to effectively use the FamilySearch Catalog, Historical Records, Research Wiki and more. This year various regions of the United States will be explored. Learn what records are unique and similar to each region. Discover new techniques, strategies, and methodology to apply to your genealogical research problems.

In house seating is limited to 120 attendees and this year all classes will be held as webinars except for the hands on activities. We ask that all participants register for the seminar.
