Join us at the Society of Genealogists’ popular 13-week Thursday evening courses to develop your family history skills.
Wanting to know about our own family’s history is a very natural feeling. Understanding what shaped our ancestors’ lives makes history come alive and helps us see our place in it. Most of us enjoy meeting and learning from expert genealogists and we find others’ ancestry almost as fascinating as our own. The Society of Genealogists offer Family History Skills for anyone that is interested in genealogy and wants to explore their family history. In a carefully, well rounded curriculum, our Tutors introduce the records that count and help you use them effectively.
The Family History Skills course has two stages:
• Stage 1 covers fundamental records, search techniques and standards (30 April - 23 July)
• Stage 2 covers the records and techniques that professional genealogists use to take their research further. (10 September - 3 December )
Evening classes can be a great way to study genealogy. Away from all the other pressures of life for two hours, you can focus on how to find your ancestors and flesh out your family’s history. You’ll spend time with other people in the class that share your interests and are as keen as you are to learn new skills.
