In-depth lessons that you can do at your own pace are the attraction of home study courses. You miss the interaction of classroom instruction, but home study may fit better into your time and budget. The National Genealogical Society has an accredited and highly rated home study course, American Genealogy: A Basic Course. Completing the lessons gives you a good grounding in how to find and record your sources, maintain your records, and evaluate your evidence. Brigham Young University offers numerous courses of independent study, such as Oral History Interviewing, Latin for Genealogists, Germanic Sources, and Hispanic Family History.
