Stirling based family history course

From Stirling Council Library & Archives Service:

Stirling Council Library & Archives Service is delighted to offer a brand new family history course entitled ‘Following The Life Lines’.

The course is suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience and is designed to take you from the very first steps in researching your family history through to the use of archival material to deepen your understanding of the lives that your forbears lived. It provides in-depth coverage of on-line resources, material available in your local library and primary sources held in local archives.

Conducted by experienced Library and Archive staff, the sessions will give you a thorough grounding in how to begin your research and how to take it further with lots of support from experienced, friendly staff and illustrations taken from all the sources discussed.

The sessions will be informal with plenty of opportunities for sharing experiences, questions and discussion. There will also be an opportunity to visit the Archives for a hands-on session using original archival material.

The course will run for six sessions starting Tuesday 17th April 2012, 7pm – 8.30pm at Bannockburn Library. The cost of the course is £70 (£60 concessions).

Please note it is not possible to register for only one class. There is a maximum of 15 places – so book now!

To register for the class, please pick up a leaflet at your local library or contact Stirling Council Archive on 01786 450745 archive@stirling.gov.uk for more details. Booking forms and payment must be received by 30 March 2012.
