Upcoming Genealogy and History Classes - Lincoln, Nebraska

Southeast Community in College in Lincoln, Nebraska is again offering some great continuing education classes for people interested in genealogy and local history.

Beginning and Intermediate Genealogy

Once again, Marcia Stewart will be teaching Beginning Genealogy, Intermediate Genealogy and and Hands-on Genealogical Research. Beginning Genealogy is on Thursday evenings, October 6 - 20. Intermediate Genealogy is on Wednesday evenings, November 30 - December 7. Hands-on Genealogical Research is one evening only, November 10. See page 24 of the SCC continuing education catalog.

History of Lincoln and Lincoln Suburbs

Noted Lincoln historian Jim McKee will be teaching History of Lincoln on Thursday evenings, October 6 - November 17. History of Lincoln suburbs is scheduled for Wednesday evenings, October 12 - November 9. See page 28 of the SCC continuing education catalog.

Grave Addiction

Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 28, 2012. Back by popular demand is Beth Santore of the Grave Addiction web site. She will be sharing her knowledge about gravestone history and symbolism. Via Facebook, Beth shared with me that there will be a field trip to Wyuka Cemetery as part of the class. Registration information will be included in the SCC Winter Catalog.

I've taken Marcia and Jim's classes and recommend them to anyone with an interest in genealogy or Lincoln history. Marcia has a knowledge base second to none and is on top of all of the latest internet resources used for genealogy. Jim's class on the history of Lincoln and his collection of vintage photographs and documents was absolutely fascinating for me since so many of my family were in the city and neighboring counties in the early days of Nebraska statehood. I'll be taking his class on Lincoln suburbs this time around since my pre-teen and teen years were spent in the Lincoln suburbs of Havelock, University Place and Bethany.
