Programs in Genealogical Research

Student Testimonials

“I chose the BU Genealogical Research Certificate Program in 2011 because I was interested in taking my genealogical research to the next level. I earned my undergraduate degree from BU, and I was thrilled to continue my educational journey with a BU program!”


“Not only did the program hone my research skills, it taught me to critically evaluate the results of my research. [That’s] essential for anyone who is serious about genealogy and preserving history. Without a doubt, I would not be at the point I am in my research without this BU program.”


“This course is a must if you truly want to learn what it takes to be a professional genealogist. It’s a great time-saver for the foundation you need to do solid genealogical work.”


“The online format is great because I don’t live in the Boston area. The teachers are very accessible.”


“I don’t think there’s anything like this in the country. The research skills I learned are invaluable.”
