Where:

Description:

Osher at Mizzou delivers courses designed to complement the interests, concerns and lifestyles of the over-50 adult.

One of the world’s most popular hobbies is genealogy. You may have dabbled a bit or have already been bitten by the genealogy bug. Derived from Greek, the word genealogy means the study of family history and descent. The written history of a family is called a family tree or a pedigree. But what starts as simple curiosity can quickly grow into an obsession.

People decide to research their family’s history for different reasons, perhaps to understand a little more about themselves and their roots; to give their children a sense of family by providing them with information about their ancestors, where they came from and how they lived; to compile a family medical history; to qualify for a lineage society, such as the Daughters of the American Revolution or Sons of the American Revolution or other heritage societies; or to publish a family history book.

Whatever your motivation, this class will examine the hows and wheres to research your family history. It is helpful if participants have begun the process and know how to complete pedigree charts and family group sheets, either on paper or a computer.
