Sat 6 Dec 10:30-17:00 Family Historian Software for Beginners and Refreshers
An overview of this popular and useful family history software package - the only major one now written in the UK (please note this course is NOT a general discussion on family history software packages). Bring your software user questions along! Suitable for Beginners and Refreshers

A full-day course with John Hanson, Cost 35.00

Sat 13 Dec 10:300-17:00 How to get the Most from Family Pictures
This full-day course is a visual Power Point presentation that provides an in-depth guide to dating, analysing and understanding all types of family portraits, from inherited paintings, drawings and silhouettes, to Victorian studio photographs and 20th century snapshots. Accurate dating is essential when trying to identify and discover more about unlabelled family pictures and the course demonstrates how to establish an accurate time frame, using a variety of techniques and research tools. It also discusses the portrait tradition and considers the historical context in which artworks and, later, photographs were commissioned: what did these special pictures mean to our ancestors and how should we interpret them?

A full-day course with Jayne Shrimpton, Cost 35.00 (please note this course is re-scheduled from its original date of 13 September).
