Rather than focusing on the “how-to” of genealogical research, the course will explore at the development of genealogical sensibility over the last 300 years to reflect on how genealogy in America was a foci of broader questions of identity, class, race, ethnicity, gender and science as much as it was also a debate around exclusiveness, belonging and family restoration.
