Genealogy

Know where you came from...
Genealogy is research into your own ancestry. Specifically, it can be a case of simply discovering names, relationships and dates. More generally, it can be the study of the social and economic history of your family.

Beginner Genealogy
Learn the basic concept of researching your family tree. Taught by professional genealogist Nick Cimino this introductory class will help you get started in techniques and sources for compiling and preparing family trees.

Genealogy Research Techniques
This course will provide an overview of the major genealogical databases available through subscription or in local libraries including the Alvin Public Library and the Clayton Center for Genealogical Research in Houston. Format is lecture only and students will follow along as the instructor demonstrates. Special focus will be on methods to conduct searches in Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org which are the largest databases in terms of the number of records and the number of users. Students will be given a broad exposure to the compiled records and the original records available on these two sites.

Nick Cimino has been conducting genealogical research since 1989 and is a member of the Association for Professional Genealogists. He specializes in U.S. Census research to 1790, immigration/naturalization records, Native American, African American and foreign records in Italy, Ireland, British Isles and Spanish speaking countries. In addition, he is the Director of Operations at the Italian Cultural and Community Center.
