This is where I am learning the trade. The woman who runs the site is an instructor. She has a doctorate, but not certain it in genealogy. If you want more info on the group just let me know.
I would be very happy to help you with this project. I love, love, love genealogy! Now that Maggie is married I returned to my passion!

Lizzy
PS: Congratulations, married lady!
Lizzy I remember reading that you were a genealogist but I couldn't remember if you were still a student or if you had gotten your certificate yet. I was hoping you would see this thread and jump in.

I think stuff like this is so fascinating. I defenitly want to find out more. I would love more info on the group. Would you mind PMing it to me? Thank you so much Lizzy.

Lizzy- where do you get certified for this? I could see my mom wanting to do that. I'm also telling her about the yahoo group. I bet she would love that! She's always calling strangers and talking to them. LOL

What I did was go to yahoogroups.com, then I chose the group I wanted to join. The group is sensational! Diana Muir is the administrator and the instructor. If you choose to take the classes she will let you know how to access the lessons. Some people take the lessons but never turn in their assignments or take the exam. I am planning on going all the way, My goal is to specialize in Irish and Minnesota genealogy.

Oh, I forgot the best part.........the course is freeeeee!

Let me know if I can help you Glenda. And if anyone else has any questions, I may be able to answer them.

Are you serious? I may have to check this site out. I love doing geneology. A couple of my Mom's cousins have gone back several generations on my Grandpa's side, we are from Norwegian royalty. Searching online I have found other geneology trees that match up with some of ours, and I have got back as far as abt 590 ac. I have done a bit of work on my Grandma's side too, but haven't gotten as far.

Glenda - you will have to let us know how the DNA thing goes. That is so awesome.

I honestly thought that it would cost more than that. Considering what you are getting, I don't think that that is expensive at all!

I've always been interested in geneology, but now that I'm bored at work today, I'm totally into it!! I have so many windows open with all the links provided! I'm thinking of taking this on as a pet project to keep me occupied and I can give it as a gift to my parents (Dad) sometime b/c he's also into this stuff too.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
