Society of Genealogists

14 Charterhouse Buildings, Goswell Road
Greater London

A chance to attend our popular 13-week evening classes without travelling anywhere. This year we're delivering our classes on Zoom. So if you found getting into London in the evenings difficult, this is a wonderful opportunity to dial in and settle down for 2 hours of new skills and understanding from our experts. Wanting to know about our own family’s history is a very natural feeling. Understanding what shaped our ancestors’ lives makes history come alive and helps us see our place in it. Most of us enjoy meeting and learning from expert genealogists and we find others’ ancestry almost as fascinating as our own. The Society of Genealogists offer Family History Skills for anyone that is interested in genealogy and wants to explore their family history. In a carefully, well rounded curriculum, our Tutors introduce the records that count and help you use them effectively. There are no specific requirements or special knowledge needed for you to attend Stage 1. The classes are ideal for people wanting to be better at building their family tree and for anyone thinking about becoming a genealogist. You can expect an entertaining and enjoyable experience.
