Last month, we shared the news of a new online genealogy course being offered called RootsMOOC. Organized by Wake Forest University’s Z. Smith Reynolds Library and the State Library of North Carolina’s Government and Heritage Library, the free course will guide you through an introduction to family history research. If you are just getting started with your family history, or even if you’ve been at it awhile, there is likely something to be learned by many.
Here at the NCGenWeb Project, we are pleased to be able to share the news that we are hosting the Facebook Discussion Group for RootsMOOC! This partnership with our NC colleagues is exciting and we hope to be able to help answer questions you may have along the way. We can also share resources from the NCGenWeb, and other USGenWeb projects, that can aid you in your research.
The course starts in just a week, on March 23rd, so come join us over at Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/rootsmooc and get started! If you have not yet enrolled, please visit our previous blog post for instructions and to all – we very much look forward to seeing you there!
