Free Genealogy Classes, Tutorials, Webinars, and Online Learning

Everyone likes “free”, right? And genealogists love to keep learning.  Here are a few resources I have come across that provide both.  They range from short videos to full multi-class college courses.

I especially recommend the genealogy “wikis”. Wikis are an under-utilized resource for genealogists, with detailed instruction on record groups, methodology, and the use of specific record collections. The content is created by experts who have extensive experience in a given locality or record group.

Only free, online offerings are included here, and some of them are free or available for limited windows, but if you stay on top of it you can build quite a curriculum for yourself! If you are aware of other resources, please let me know so I can add them to the list.
