Family history is of enormously growing popularity not only for senior citizens, but also for people of all ages. For example, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln offers a course on family history that regularly draws seventy students. There is little doubt that our aging population together with the information accessibility provided through the web has greatly enhanced interest in genealogy.

This program will explain how it is possible to create vivid impressions of the lives of our ancestors even when documents such as letters and diaries are few or non-existent.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
