Family History Skills Course for Beginners at the Society of Genealogists – 15 weeks starting 3 September
The Society’s successful evening family history skills course begins again with the first fifteen-week series of classes for those who are new to genealogy and family history or who have had a little experience and want to learn more. The team of lecturers will introduce the records and illustrate how they should best be used for the study of family history.
This course provides plenty of opportunity to use genealogical sources in practical sessions in the classroom and as exercises at home. The lectures cover sources in all the major repositories but emphasis is also placed on the extensive collections held in the Library of the Society of Genealogists that can be of help to the beginner. We will look at using birth, marriage and death records, census, parish registers, wills, the armed forces, how to lay out a pedigree and more.
Thursday evenings 6-8pm, 3 September-10 December. £180.00 (non-SoG members), £144.00 for SoG members. For more information or booking, contact the events co-ordinator, tel: 020 7553 3290, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
