"The Maarifa Genealogy course is quite comprehensive. Each module provides great information on how to find records, compile information, and understand documentation found in the process of tracing your ancestry. It's worth every penny."

--Da'Von D.

"Lindsay’s genealogy course was truly a catalyst for delving deeper into my family’s history. If not for this course, I wouldn’t have had the much needed framework to begin exploring my family’s ancestral history. This course personally helped me process the death of my grandmother and document her life story in a rich and beautiful way. I highly suggest this course, especially to individuals who identify as African American and need assistance using documents to trace their family’s history. Thank you for creating this course Lindsay!
