Advanced Google for Genealogists (CD)

By Lisa Louise Cooke

Format: CD

SKU# X4832

If you prefer to learn on your own, Family Tree University independent study courses are perfect for you.

These courses are self-guided, "offline" versions of our online courses. You receive the same curriculum and supplemental materials, but you do the work completely on your own, making them an ideal choice for students who truly want to work at their own pace.

In contrast to our online courses, where class is "in session" for a specified four-week period, there's no set time line for an independent study class, you could approach it as an intensive crash course, pick it up on weekends over several months, or whatever works best for you.

Choose a course on CD if you prefer to have course materials gathered in a physical package. Files are still digital -- in Word and PDF format for you to open on your computer.
