Family History looks easy when you see it on TV, but in reality things can be quite different and it can be a bewildering subject for the uninitiated. Even if you have made a good start and feel fairly confident there is much more you can do to take your research to areas you have never thought of and really start bringing your ancestors to life! In this five-week course we will look not just at how to start, but at the tips and pitfalls of searching, at some of the lesser known sources you can use and also how to surmount those family history brick walls. This course is suitable for beginners and also for those with some experience behind them and is run by genealogist Celia Heritage. Celia is a regular lecturer for the Society of Genealogists in London, at the Who Do You Think You Are show at Olympia and at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies. She also writes for various national family history magazines.
