Ancestry Academy Adds Short Courses

Writing in the Ancestry Blog, Anne Gillespie Mitchell, a Senior Product Manager at, describes the latest additions to Ancestry Academy’s courses:

Ancestry Academy has added something new this month: Short Courses! This new offering will give you quick tips on one topic in 5 minutes or less. This month we start with some of the basics on the U.S. Federal Census:

  • Pre 1850-Censuses
  • 1850 Census: An Introduction
  • 1890 Census: Where is it?
  • 1880 Census: An Overview
  • Introduction to the 1940 Census

These short courses and dozens of other classes are free to watch, although you may be required to create a new login if this is your first time viewing Ancestry Academy classes.
