6 Ancestors in 6 Days

Explore your ancestry in this 6-day, hands-on, intensive course guided by expert instructor, Lisa Alzo.

Each day, you’ll choose the person you want to research with the goal of finding at least one piece of evidence to support the type of fact we'll be researching for that day. You’ll get a packet of information, including video lessons and worksheets, that will help you overcome challenges, such as missing records and alternative resources. Plus, experienced researcher, Lisa Alzo, will be on hand to answer your questions and provide additional guidance along the way.

DATE: February 13, 2023 - February 21, 2023

Course Design

Each day's lesson will provide you with a packet of learning materials and the day's search objective. This course is designed to be hands-on and intensive, so be prepared to devote some time each day to the lessons. However, if you can't make a day's lesson, that's okay - they'll all be there to download and catch up on at the end. The discussion boards will close at the end of the week, but you'll have access to download the materials or read them in read-only mode for a year after.

You can approach this in one of 2 ways:

  • Option 1: Choose 6 different ancestors, depending on the type of record you're searching for.
  • Option 2: Attempt to gather evidence for each of the fact types for one ancestor.

Workshop Outline

  • Day 1: Find an ancestor’s birth and/or death dates
  • Day 2: Document where an ancestor lived over time
  • Day 3: Find an ancestor’s immigration records
  • Day 4: Research an ancestor’s occupation or military service
  • Day 5: Discover your newsworthy ancestor
  • Day 6: Find an ancestor’s tax records
  • Day 7: Put it all together
