The story of America is more than a timeline in a history book. It is the story of millions of families over hundreds of years and thousands of miles. It is the story of YOU.

Join author and history storyteller Gail Masinda as she guides you on a journey of discovery for the unique story of your family. While learning the basics of genealogical research, students of all ages will incorporate the important story of their own families with significant historic events which may have impacted and influenced their families. You will learn what information to look for and then what to do with it.

No personal information is shared in this course! Upon completion of the assignments for this class, students will have a beginning historic record of their family and have the skills to add more facts and stories as they are discovered.

This course includes lifetime access to six online lessons (one hour of exclusive video), plus all forms and documents you will need to get started. Additionally, you will have unlimited access to bonus live sessions. The live session schedule will be posted on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HistoryHeightsResources/) These sessions are not recorded to protect student privacy. During these small group sessions, you can ask your questions and get any additional help you need on the course materials.

Here's some of what we will learn and do in this course includes:

  • How to properly complete a Family Group Sheet

  • How to write citations for genealogial research

  • Become comfortable with the specific lingo of genealogy

  • Learn the basics of conducting interviews

  • Organize and archive your research

  • Write stories about historic events that have impacted your family

  • How to create a pedigree chart

  • and more!

  • live group bonus sessions (not recorded, always scheduled)


No previous experience in genealogy is needed. This course starts from the beginning. All ages (including adults!) are welcome, but because of the research and writing involved, a minimum middle school reading level is needed for this course.

IMPORTANT: You can jump into the live bonus sessions anytime, but you can begin the pre-recorded sessions TODAY. The course is complete on its own. The live bonus sessions are for extra support and help. The schedule will be posted on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HistoryHeightsResources/)
