Improving your genealogy skills

This is the time of year when folks start to think about courses they might take as the days get shorter. Helen Osborn of Pharos Tutors sent the following list of their offerings for the next three months: Maybe you'll discover one you've been wanting in this list:

Also new, catering to burgeoning interest in innovative ways of communicating family history
Personal Historian: Video Techniques (INTERMEDIATE)

New, starting in October for those looking to get into the business of family history:
