This class will seek to merge the tools of basic genealogical research with the greatest source of genealogical information ever assembled, the Internet. Each session will concentrate on matching specific areas of building a “family tree” to available resources on the Internet so that the students can take full advantage of the computer to find their ancestors. Please note that this is not a “hands-on” computer class, but a lecture class from which students can take away information and use on their home (or other) computer.
Robert Marlowe, an Oak Ridger, has been a teacher and an administrator with the Anderson County School System. Now retired, Bob has been and continues to be involved in genealogy. He has taught this subject at ORICL in the past, but now computers and the Internet can make genealogy searching easier and quicker.
