Have you ever used the Internet to learn about genealogy methods and resources? Taken a
genealogy course online? Read some 'how to' articles? Then I would like to hear
I am an Australian Ph.D. student who is currently writing a book chapter for an academic
Virtual Learning Environment publication - my chapter is about using the Internet for
genealogical education. I would therefore love to hear from you, fellow genealogists,
about any Internet-based content you've used for genealogy education. This includes
online courses (free or fee), how-to's, articles/columns, newsgroups, BBS, chat,
mailing lists, forums, or even personal web pages that publish learning material -
anything online that helps you in learning the craft of genealogy.
Your comments on the following is of utmost interest: What are your favourite learning
outlets on the Internet? How often do you use them? Can or did you find what you needed
online? What are your learning successes? What could be better? What do you look for in
genealogical learning on the Internet?
If you would like to participate, your comments are extremely welcome. Please send your
comments to me directly at research(a)veale.com.au before Saturday 1st May 2004. I thank
you in advance for your participation in this academic research.
P.S. Names and email addresses will be protected and are therefore not included in the
publication. Copies of the paper will be made available to interested participants on
request, after the book has been published.
