Family History Skills - Stage 2 - evening classes
Online course - a session every Thursday - on Zoom
Take your family history knowledge and skills to the next level. Our Stage 2 evening classes cover the records and techniques that professional genealogists use.
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. 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.
Stage 2 covers the records and techniques that professional genealogists use to take their research further. You should have attended Stage 1 or already have some experience of genealogical research and be familiar with the basic records (General Registration, the censuses, directories, parish registers and bishops' transcripts and wills).
With tutors Else Churchill, Simon Fowler, Antony Marr, Alec Tritton and Debbie Kennett.
