Aha! Seminars, Inc.®, the producer of The Genealogy Guys Podcast, the Genealogy Connection podcast, and The Genealogy Guys Blog, is pleased to announce the launch of Genealogy Guys Learn (genealogyguyslearn.com), a subscription-based educational website designed to provide genealogy courses and videos for researchers of all skill levels.
At its launch, Genealogy Guys Learn consists of text/image-based courses on such topics as Basic Research, Intermediate Research, Libraries & Archives, the Social Security Death Index, Wills and Probate Records, and Military Records. Genealogy Guys Learn also contains a dozen recorded presentations by George G. Morgan and Drew Smith, including All About the U.S. Federal Census, U.S. Agricultural Censuses, Principles of Effective Evidence Analysis, Finding Archived Newspapers, Getting Past Brick Walls, Organizing Your Research Process, Copyright and Plagiarism, Using MyHeritage, and Genealogy Orienteering (Maps). The website will be updated each month with additional content (new courses or videos), providing continuing value to the subscribers. The Genealogy Guys have almost 100 additional courses and videos to be added over time.
Another feature of the Genealogy Guys Learn website is that it provides a Resources area with quick access to information about books written by George G. Morgan and Drew Smith; other books referenced and recommended in courses and videos, quick sheets, and magazines; recommended software, hardware, and online services; and useful links to websites related to the content provided in the courses and videos.
“Drew Smith and I have been speaking at genealogy conferences worldwide for decades,” said George G. Morgan, president of Aha! Seminars, Inc. “But attending conferences is not always practical or within the budget for all genealogists. With the launch of Genealogy Guys Learn, we’re able to provide our affordable educational services directly to the genealogist in their own homes on their own schedules.”
The Genealogy Guys Learn website automatically keeps track of courses and videos users have viewed, so that users can see their progress at a glance. The website will be updated each month with additional content (new courses or videos), providing continuing value to the subscribers. Subscribers will be able to provide email to George and Drew as to which topics they would most like to see added in the future.
