Join us for a week-long genealogy course designed to explore the records and repositories available for researching ancestors in Pennsylvania. Hear from nationally-recognized instructors, explore the significance of the Keystone State as a hub for immigration, and access records only available onsite at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.

This is a complete “how-to” course, training you to use the resources available at HSP and elsewhere to uncover your family’s story! The curriculum takes participants through three primary questions:

• What records are available?
• Where are the records located?
• How can you decipher what you discover?

By the end of this course, you'll have the answers!

This course is designed for all levels, from beginners to experienced family historians. Enrollment will be limited to 40 persons on a first come, first served basis. No Refunds can be issued after July 3, 2020.

Open to the public
$450 Friends of HSP / $499 General Admission
