As you might know from my about page, improving my research skills and continuing my education in genealogy is one of my “wish list” items. I’ve been mulling over the Boston University Genealogy research program for what seems like ages now, and I finally decided to take the plunge. I enrolled in the Summer 2012 online session, which seems to fit in most easily with my own teaching schedule.
I’m super excited about the course and can’t wait until it starts in May. The website warns that there is a lot of work involved (10 – 15+ hours per week), so I have already blocked out space in my calendar for each set of lessons. I have a one week vacation scheduled during the course, but I’ve been assured that it won’t interfere as long as I can work ahead before going on vacation. I’ll also look into wifi access while I’m away. It is going to be a challenge, but I love challenges!!
I have to thank my wonderful husband for agreeing to let me take yet another set of educational courses. He completely understands my never-ending craving for knowledge. I’m going to guess that’s the norm for most educators.
Have you considered the BU course? Want to join me in May?
