Trenton will be among the sites where University of Missouri Extension will offer two non-credit classes designed for persons ages fifty and older.
The courses are taught through video streamed from the University of Missouri campus to various locations. North Central Missouri College is among those sites.
One of the courses is taught by retired educator and Trenton Republican Times columnist Anna Martin. Her class is called Researching Your Family History. Ms. Martin, who's a long-time genealogist, will talk about heritage societies, how to publish a family history book, how and where to research, and helpful online technology. The 8 week course taught by Anna Martin will be on Tuesday mornings from 10 until 11:30 from September 9th through October 28th.
The other class, called Travels with Sharon, deals with travels in France, China, Burma, Laos, Spain, and Portugal. The course is led by Sharon Kinden, a travelogue writer and photographer. The 8 weeks class will be offered on Thursday mornings from 10 until 11:30 beginning September 11th.
The classes are through the University of Missouri's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
