Generations Cafe Circle is now...
A membership to help you
make family history discoveries with ease
Get ready to change your work in genealogy with the help of Generations Connection.
Make research less overwhelming, build a network of support, and help get the answers you need from records and a community that’s working on the same projects as you.
Diving into your family history can be challenging at times. There are some days when you know you need to do the work, but you don't know where to start or there's too much to do that you feel stuck.
Look no further.
Welcome to Generations Connection, a membership that gives you access to professional genealogist, librarian, and Ancestry.com expert, Amy Johnson Crow. You also get access to a community of genealogists, the tools, tips, and tricks that you need to succeed in your research, and also take on the most challenging of genealogical records.
Amy believes that what brings us together with genealogy research is simple: we want to tell the stories of our ancestors. Everyone can research their family history, and Generations Connection aims to do that in a way that is accessible to all, from novices to experts, everyone can speak to the ancestors once more.
Amy starts off simply, with taking a step back from your work and reframing it with her WANDER method.
What’s the WANDER method you ask?
It's a method to help you find your ancestors without going in circles. You don't get bogged down in your research. You WANDER and make more discoveries about your family history.
- What do you want to find?
- Analyze what you already have
- Note what is missing
- Discover new records
- Evaluate everything
- Repeat as necessary
Generations Connection members learn how to use this method to expand their research. We’re all here to learn the stories of our ancestors, and drowning in research shouldn’t hold us back. With the WANDER method, that doesn’t happen. Research is not a straight line, and members of Generations Connection learn that the best way to dive into their family history is to WANDER and find their ancestors along the way.
After practicing with the WANDER method, which has been pivotal to many members’ research, Generations Connection helps you continue your work.
What Your Membership Includes:
- Classes and workshops on popular genealogical topics that go below the surface of “just check the records,” and offer practical tips and hands-on work. Members have access not only to live classes and workshops, but also recordings that they can access for the length of their membership.
- Access to all past courses from before you were a member. Past topics have included finding female ancestors, hidden items on Ancestry.com, and so much more, in the members-only library.
- A monthly Q&A with Amy Johnson Crow and the Generations Connection community to talk about research roadblocks, discoveries, and practical strategies for your individual projects
- 24/7 Access to the Generations Connection forum, to meet other genealogists, get help with your research, and network with others about their family history experiences.
- Resources for hands-on activities to help you with your own research in your members-only library
- A weekly members-only newsletter that reminds you of upcoming events, as well as notes from Amy Johnson Crow sharing her current research, the latest genealogy advances, and trends
Genealogy coaching can often cost hundreds and typically is a coaching call that happens once. With Generations Connection, it’s not a one-and-done. Generations Connection has been kept at a low price to make family history research accessible to all.

Frequently Asked Questions:
When does my access to the Generations Connection begin?
You'll have access to everything as soon as you sign up! We regularly update and add new material, too, so your library will continue growing.
How is this different than the genealogy webinars that are out there?
I'm glad you asked! The video trainings inside Generations Connection are similar to webinars, but you also have access to the instructor so you can ask your questions.
Generations Connection also has other features, such as a monthly Q&A session, guides, exercises, and access to genealogy expert Amy Johnson Crow.
How is Generations Connection different than anything I can read or watch for free on the Internet?
There is good information online, no doubt. The challenge with relying totally on free content is that it's random. You could be spending your valuable time trying to understand things that aren't really applicable to your own research. (On the flip side, you could be missing out on some topics that you really do need to know — but you don't know to look for them.) There's also the challenge of not being able to really go in-depth with questions (if you can ask any questions at all!) Your Generations Connection membership takes care of all of that. It gives you structure at an affordable price. It's information that you need to know, with the opportunity to ask the questions that you have.
What if I'm unhappy with my membership?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your membership, you can get a full refund in your first 14 days. You can also cancel your membership at any time.
I'm a beginner. Is Generations Connection right for me?
The classes and other resources inside Generations Connection are ideal for family historians who consider themselves beginner through intermediate researchers. It's designed to help you build a solid foundation of research skills.
I'm a more advanced genealogist. Is Generations Connection right for me?
The classes and other resources inside Generations Connection are designed to help you build a solid foundation of research skills. (That being said, I've had people who have been doing research for decades tell me that I've taught them something new.)
Is Generations Connection good for researchers outside the United States?
It depends. The examples and most of the resources are U.S.-based. However, the methods that are talked about (such as evaluating evidence) are applicable globally.
How do I know my rate won't go up?
Your rate won't go up as long as you stay a member of Generations Connection. (Note: If you cancel and then rejoin later, you will rejoin at the rate in effect when you rejoin.)
