    Karen & Kelly, I just rec’d an email from MPC saying that Library 61 has been cancelled. Is this correct? Thank you.

    I just found out about MPC genealogy classes taught by Karen Clifford. I believe that there are more like me. The issues are:
    1. We want to take classes for our personal enrichment.
    2. We do not need, or want, college credit. I already have several Master Degrees.
    3. We do not want to hassle with a lengthy formal enrollment.
    4. We are willing and able to pay a reasonable fee.
    If MPC could accommodate us and publicize the classes, perhaps the enrollment would increase.

      Students who want to take the class for personal enrichment are encouraged to sign up as a P/NP student. There are several retired teachers attending these classes. All you need to enroll is an add code with instructor approval which can be accomplished online by emailing The student may then register online at Karen enjoys helping anyone learn more about genealogy. If you have other comments either email Karen personally or post your comments at the blog.
