Free online genealogy course
Genealogy – researching your family tree
The University of Strathclyde is running a free genealogy course which you can join via FutureLearn. It’s free (unless you want a certificate, which costs £69).
Find and analyse genealogical sources, and tell your family’s forgotten story
This online course will develop your understanding of genealogy techniques and how to communicate your family history.
You’ll start by defining what you want to research, before considering the best ways to find and analyse sources, and store and record what you find. You’ll look at the challenge of locating the right ancestor, including the potential of DNA testing in genealogy.
Finally, we’ll introduce the main tools that genealogists use to communicate their research, including creating a family tree, and show you how to write a meaningful family history, incorporating historical context.
