Beyond the Hints


Go beyond the hints and make more discoveries

about your family tree

If you've ever felt like there was "something more" you could find about your family tree, but you weren't sure what to do next, Beyond the Hints is for you.


The shaking leaves and other hints that we get on many genealogy websites can be helpful, but they don't point us to everything about our ancestors. Beyond the Hints will help you understand those hundreds of hints that you have and show you how to find even more about your ancestors.


More discoveries. Less frustration.

Beyond the Hints

Beyond the Hints is a go-at-your-own-pace course designed to help you take the next steps in your genealogy research.

You'll learn:

  • How the right question can make your research more efficient
  • How to pull clues out of the documents you already have
  • How to spot gaps in your research — and how to fill them
  • How to find the records you need
  • How to tell if that record really is talking about your ancestor
  • How to get better results on any website or database that you use

Each session is divided into short, easily-digested lessons. No more sitting through hour-long videos! Stop and start wherever you'd like and easily pick back up wherever you left off.

Beyond the Hints covered things that I wish I had known sooner. It also gave me solutions for rabbit-holes I have gone into and tons of useful information to reorganize my research and move forward.
