Genealogy Education

If you’re ready to get serious about your genealogy education, here are some programs to consider.  Note that while some provide “Certificates,” and all are excellent genealogy education programs, they do not provide “Certification.” (Please see beneath the chart for information about Certification and Accreditation).

Also please note that due to the current worldwide pandemic, many In-Person venues may be changed to Online/Virtual. Please check with the individual program to verify all information and details.  This list is just for general information.
