All About Ancestry
A 4-week workshop to help you discover more of your family history
Are you frustrated using Ancestry.com?
It can feel overwhelming to do a search on Ancestry and get 17,875 results.... and wonder if you really got the one result that you're looking for.
It can also be frustrating watching a webinar and not have an opportunity to try out what you're learning or have a chance to ask questions.
Imagine the satisfaction of finally understanding how Ancestry works and feeling confident that you're finding what you need to fill in the gaps of your family tree. With plenty of opportunities to practice and get guidance on your questions, you'll develop and practice the skills to navigate this massive website, uncover tricky-to-find records, and piece together your genealogy like a seasoned detective.
Join me for All About Ancestry
You're invited to All About Ancestry, a 4-part interactive workshop. Learn the best ways to search the billions of records available on Ancestry, how to manage your tree, and more, all to help you discover more about your family history.
Get ready for a new approach to learning about this fantastic resource!
Inside All About Ancestry:
Over the course of 4 weeks, Amy Johnson Crow will show you how to:
- Effectively search on Ancestry
- Manage hints and your tree
- Navigate hard-to-use collections, such as Probate
- Understand the basics of the AncestryDNA features
"All About Ancestry" is a hybrid workshop. The lessons are pre-recorded. The live sessions will be in a Q&A format. This will give you a chance to watch the lessons on your own schedule, try out the methods shown, and have your Ancestry questions answered! (No more trying out things during a webinar, only to miss out on some content... or not be able to watch the class live because of a scheduling conflict!)
The live sessions of All About Ancestry workshop will be January 17, 24, 31, and February 7, 2024 with each session beginning at 7:00pm Eastern. Each session will last 60-90 minutes.
The pre-recorded lessons will be available beginning January 10, 2024.
In-depth genealogy workshops are often only available at conferences and institutes, which can often cost hundreds. Generations Connection has been kept at a low price to make family history research accessible to all. You can get this workshop — including the live sessions, handouts, and lifetime access to the replays — for only $149.
Or: you can join Generations Connection as an Annual Member. An Annual Membership gives you access to other workshops in the Generations Connection membership, monthly live Q&As with Amy, access to the community forum, and more. An Annual Membership is just $270.
Genealogy doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Whether you’re just beginning, or even if you’re a seasoned pro, there’s always something new to learn, or a way to look at your research that you may not have noticed before.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How Is This Different than the Genealogy Webinars That Are out there?
I'm glad you asked! The workshops are interactive, so you will not only be shown the material, you'll actually have a chance to work through it. (Learning by doing!) There are also lots of opportunities for you to ask your questions.
The Generations Connection annual membership also has other features, such as monthly Q&A sessions, guides, exercises, and access to genealogy expert Amy Johnson Crow. (Note: the monthly Q&A sessions, etc., aren't available to those who register just for All About Ancestry.)
How Are the Generations Connection workshops 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!) Generations Connection workshops 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's the Difference Between the Workshop and the Annual MEMBERSHIP?
Registering for the All About Ancestry workshop gives you access to the pre-recorded classes, the live sessions (and the replays), along with all of the workbooks.
Joining with an Annual Membership gives you access to everything in the All About Ancestry workshop; monthly live Q&A sessions with genealogy expert Amy Johnson Crow; and access to all of the classes and workshops in the Generations Connection library.
What's the Refund Policy?
Single workshops: Because the replays of the workshops are available afterward, there are no refunds offered after the workshop begins. (In other words, the last day for refunds for the January 2024 "All About Ancestry" workshop is January 9, 2024, the day before the pre-recorded sessions become available.)
Annual passes have a 14-day refund policy.
What Do You Mean by "Lifetime Access"?
The workshops are recorded. You'll have access to those recordings for as long as Generations Connections is around.
I'm a Beginner. Is This Workshop Right for Me?
The workshop will be very "how-to," showing things step-by-step. You do need to be comfortable using a computer and accessing the Internet. You will get the most out of the "All About Ancestry" workshop if you have an active Ancestry subscription.
We will not be covering research methodology (evaluating sources, etc.)
I'm a More advanced Genealogist. Is This Workshop Right for Me?
