Introduction to Genealogy An Online College Course

Genealogists who want to develop their research skills will benefit from taking this 15-week online course. Students in this in-depth course will become familiar with many online and print sources, will interact with one another and the instructors in discussion forums and email, and will complete weekly assignments to learn about important records and useful genealogical skills. Records and examples from Tennessee history will be used, but the skills learned are applicable to genealogical research in other states as well.

The course is offered online and you will be able to complete the weekly assignments at your own pace. There is no set class time. There is also no textbook. Class participants will also have access to Ancestry Library edition through ProQuest.


The cost of the course for 3 semester hours of college credit is $498 ($458 for a three hour course at Jackson State, plus fees). Students who wish to take the course for credit pay the full price for the course. Once they complete the coursework and exams, they will get the college credit. Registration is made through the JSCC Admissions office.

Students who don’t need college credit may take the course on a pass/fail basis for $225 through JSCC Continuing Education.
