BYU Personal Enrichment Courses

I found out about some free Family History courses today at one of the exhibits at the FGS/UGA Genealogy Conference. I graduated from BYU, so you'd think I would have already known this, but BYU offers some free Personal Enrichment Independent Study courses specifically on Family History.

Here is a link to the BYU website and a list of their Personal Enrichment classes. I'll just list the Family History classes here.

FHGEN 68 - Finding Your Ancestors
FHGEN 69 - Providing Temple Ordinances for Your Ancestors
FHGEN 70 - Introduction to Family History Research
FHGEN 75 - Writing Family History (this one actually costs $24)

You don't receive any college credit for these classes...since they are free...but it might be helpful to quiz yourself and at least browse through some of the lessons.


I have many ancestors in the united states military since colonial days !
Please sign me up for FHREC 76 and advise me, by e-mail , of the days involved .

Thank you

I appreciate your comment, but I have no affiliation with the BYU courses...I just wrote an entry about them to make others aware of them as well. Here is the link for you to sign yourself up for the class
