Genealogy on the Internet *NEW!*

In recent years with the vast amounts of genealogical data now available on the Internet, both “treasures” and “tribulations” await someone wanting to conduct a search on their own family’s ancestry. In this class, you will learn the major providers of genealogical content, how to discern the difference between “good” and “questionable” data, and enhance your searching skills to improve your existing family tree. You will receive guided tours through fee based sites and engage in real-time searching on free sites. Between classes, you will receive optional assignments to research further on your own tree for discussion at the next class.

This course will be offered online via Canvas and Zoom. Course information, including a meeting link and login information, will be emailed to registrants within 1 week of the course start date.

Tuition: $85 (includes $40 in fees*)

Heredity, Health, and Disease

In this course you will learn about the inheritance patterns of both simple and complex traits, including how various aspects of DNA impact human health. You will become familiar with tools and websites that can be used as lens to gain further insight into one’s own inheritance and health predispositions. Additional topics include epigenetics (the interplay between one’s genes and the environment), as well as emerging biotechnologies for treating genetic conditions.
