Genealogy TV Academy

Learn Genealogy Virtually with Monthly Membership Courses

“I help genealogy enthusiasts break down brick walls by learning smart research methods… find more records… and get organized…  so that they can share their ancestry with family and future generations.”   Constance Henley Knox


Each month the Genealogy TV Academy will host a live virtual class meeting about a different research subject. These Zoom classes will be recorded for review later.


As courses are developed, handouts and worksheets will be made available in the course platform. These will help you with your research for years to come.


There are currently two fully developed courses available for you right to start right now. One is called Getting Started in Genealogy (beginners) and the other is Smart Research (learn about records, evidence analysis, research strategies to help you focus the research process, and much more). These courses have informative videos, handouts, worksheets, and specific step-by-step instructions to guide you through an organized path to help you with your genealogy research goals. With time, more lessons will be added to the platform.


All 2022 and 2023 (ongoing) videos and handouts from the Genealogy TV YouTube Channel have been added to the Academy platform for commercial free viewing.


Newly created paths by subject help students get the best of both the GTV YouTube Videos in combination with the exclusive Genealogy TV Academy lessons to create a logical path by subject. Current path subjects include, AncestryDNA, Research Notes, and Creating Floating Trees on Ancestry. Paths are designed to give you a full and detailed education by topic.


As a member, you’ll be invited to join the Genealogy TV Insider Facebook Group where you can ask questions between the monthly Zoom calls.

What Some of the Students are Saying About the GTV Academy

This is great, thank you so much! My genealogy journey has grown in leaps and bounds since signing up for the Academy. I’m slowly cleaning up my tree as I have done some bone head things when I first started a decade ago. Catching them now and telling myself “What were you thinking?” “Oh, you weren’t”. Again, thanks Connie…as you may have deduced I want to become consistent in my research & documentation, which leads hopefully to accuracy?. You have been an easy to understand & patient teacher.


The Academy here is superb, and the educational material is top-notch. I’ve been working on my family tree for about twenty years (more seriously over the past five or six years) and hardly a day goes by that I don’t learn something, either from the presentation of materials or from others in the academy Zoom sessions. What is best about all of this is that everyone who offers genealogical training does so selflessly and with a desire to be of help to others. And that is especially true of Connie and her work. 

Bill T.

I cannot believe how much new information I’ve been finding… I’ve already decided the course is well worth the money!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Cheers!

Connie M.

Thanks again so much for all you do. I LOVE being a subscriber to the academy even if i can’t catch the live sessions these recording come in handy!! 

James F.

I’ve joined some genealogy societies, I belong to Legacy Webinars, and have seen lots of you-tube people, but hands-down I have learned more from you. You have a relaxed, approachable style, great sense of humor, and mad teaching skills. 🙂 (Really- Besides genealogy stuff, I’ve learned a ton of just everyday Excel tips, Footnotes in MS-Word, etc. from your videos.) 

Debbie J.

I am learning a lot which is helping with the family research… Providing tools to help with my research. 

Shelly D.

This exercise showed me how close all these folks lived to each other when before I had no idea. Brought an aha smile to my face. It’s like standing back and seeing the forest instead of just the few trees around me. Thanks for all your lessons – they really pay off. 

Jill B.

I love the zoom meetings and the fact that if there are questions Connie answers them, even if the class runs over time. The self-guided courses are great so we can go at our own speed. There are many other platforms out there for learning about genealogy, but none as clear, concise and thorough as Genealogy TV and Connie Knox. Thank you so very much for sharing your expertise with us.

Naomi F.

I appreciate, understand and enjoy the way you are organized, your wonderful way you present, teach, coach, your knowledge/experience and your wit. Connie like I said in the question above, I think your GREAT! I look forward to your next session each week for YouTube and twice a month for the Academy! Connie you’re the BEST! AND you’re my Hero too! Thanks for ALL…

Bradley M.

Watched your videos and they were so informative and understandable realized I would gain info without wasting money. Clear, informative classes, responsive to questions and down to earth.

Allyn H.

Explaining without being condescending.

Gloria G.

I love the videos and zoom classes. I am enjoying the classes, learning a lot and they keep me motivated to better organize and document my tree.

Daryl W.

That’s hard to answer, we’ve been able to “pick” your brain and that’s about as good as sit gets!

Linda B.

I’ve just turned 80 and hope I have enough time to get my ancestors “polished up”. Love your methodology of getting organized.

Marina D.

  What are we doing right? Everything! Loving the format and the handouts.

Jody R.

Love the Live Zoom interactions! In my opinion, the entire GTV Academy if superb; but it would be fun if we could all meet in person once a year. Thanks for giving me the joy and inspiration in my journey of Genealogy.
