The Dead Relative Collectors hosts a variety of free classes for those interested in furthering their genealogy research. As featured in the IGS 2011 Winterly Quarterly, "DRC has no bylaws, no dues, and no membership requirements. If you come to our meetings, you are a member and all are welcome."

The DRC meetings are just prior to the IGS Board Meetings.  The DRC meets the 3rd Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the Idaho State Archives, 2205 Old Penitentiary Road, Boise, ID 83712. Come learn from our talented lecturers and then put to practice what you've learned in the Idaho State Archives!!

Christa has previously taught classes to the DRC group on topics such as Immigration and Naturalization,  Migration Patterns and British Isles research.  She is a regular lecturer at the BYU-ID Nampa Family History Conference.  Please send an email to idgensociety@gmail.com  if you'd like a copy of the class syllabus.

  1. I love using social media for genealogy. Using Facebook, Twitter and more has led me to relatives I've never met before. I have used social media to help cousins find my genealogy blog.
