University of Strathclyde’s Summer Institute of Genealogical Studies

From the University of Strathclyde's genealogical studies department (https://www.strath.ac.uk/cll/cpd/genealogicalstudies/):

University of Strathclyde’s Summer Institute of Genealogical Studies
27 June-1 July 2016

Join us at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow for this annual event aimed at intermediate to advanced level family history researchers. There are three main course topics, with sessions on each topic running every day over one week. You can choose to do one topic in-depth over the five days or take just one day from a course or two. Learn new skills, experience something different and enjoy meeting fellow genealogists.

Courses are:

· British Military Research
· Irish Resources and Research Techniques
· Practical Application of Genetic Genealogy

Day to day timetables are available on our website. Courses will be taught by well-known and respected genealogical lecturers and experts from around the UK.

Registration is ongoing. The standard fee per course day is £90 but for bookings before 01 May 2016 each course day fee is £80. University of Strathclyde postgraduate genealogy programme alumni discounts are also available.
