Go In-Depth with Lisa:

Why have you chosen to teach others Genealogy?
I think it is important to learn about our ancestors and ethnic heritage, and I enjoy teaching others about tools and techniques they can use to connect with their past.

What is your best piece of advice for someone just starting in Genealogy?
Remember:  There is NO easy button!  Genealogy is a journey, not a sprint. Investigate and evaluate every piece of documentation you can find about an ancestor and, above all, never give up!

Why should someone take your class?
My class will help students get over their fear of writing so they can learn how to transform their years of research into shareable stories others will want to read. My mission is to coach genealogists for writing success. If you want to stop procrastinating and start writing, this class is for you!
