Wisdom Wednesday - I'm off to Germany!

I'm going to Germany! Well, virtually at least. I just signed up to take the Germanic Family, Local and Social History Research class through BYU's Independent Study program. I'm excited because I've always wanted to know more about German genealogy research (I've got German ancestry on all four of my grandparents' lines). Plus, it's the last course I need to finish the genealogy-family history certificate at BYU. It looks pretty intense, as the teacher's stated goal is to prepare you for the Germany accreditation test through ICAPGEN, which is something I plan on doing anyways. So it's a win-win for me. I have one year to complete the whole course. Hopefully it won't take me that long. I want to take some time with it, learn the material as best I can, and put it to practice as soon as I can. Here's to higher education!
