SALT LAKE CITYFall is the perfect time to head back to school.

That’s true even for adults, particularly for anyone interested in either starting family history research or have run into a particularly challenging area you need help tackling. For those in either category, the Family History Library in Salt Lake offers a variety of free classes designed to help with any challenge. 

There’s one day left of the library’s Nordic Family History Conference, which is wrapping up Oct. 21 both at the Salt Lake library and online. All classes will be held in the 2nd floor north lab, though the classes will be live streamed so it’s possible to attend them online as well. 

To register, visit Even though the conference has started, registration is still open.

Some of the classes being offered on the final day of the conference discuss issues like understanding Norwegian military and probate records, how to find ancestors in online Norwegian farm books, and understanding the Norwegian Emigration experience. 

The library is also offering classes throughout the rest of the month on a variety of topics. Some of the classes are webinars, which can either be viewed from home or from the listed classroom at the Family History Library in Salt Lake.
