Still spaces on Scottish Research Online course

Need some help with your Scottish ancestral research? There are still spaces available on the next Scottish Research Online course, run by Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Ltd, and taught by yours truly, which commences September 4th (week tomorrow!) and runs for 5 weeks. Entirely taught online, there are weekly lessons, a weekly chat online, and a dedicated forum to help keep the discussion flowing between lessons. (NB: attendance of the weekly chats is not compulsory, but will assist in understanding the lesson's content - if you can't make one or more of the chats, transcripts are provided of the conversations).

Here's a wee intro!

So, as the man says...! The course looks at many of the more common websites used for Scottish genealogical research, though not just at the obvious parts of the sites, but also at many hidden gems you may not be aware of. I also look at many sites you may not have heard of, plus I throw in additional tips and background information on much of what made Scotland tick historically. It's a very different country in many ways to its partners in the United Kingdom, with a different legal system and state church, different land records, different everything!

If you fancy taking a sledgehammer to your ancestral brick walls, this should help develop your muscle tone before you lift it! :)

The cost is £45.99 - for further details on the course and how to book, please visit http://pharostutors.com/details.php?coursenumber=102 - hopefully see you there!


My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My Scottish land and church records ebooks are available at http://www.gen-ebooks.com/unlock-the-past.html, whilst my next Pharos Scottish course, Scottish Research Online, starts Sep 4th - see http://pharostutors.com/details.php?coursenumber=102. Time to smash a few brick walls...!
