Join us on the Society of Genealogists’ popular evening classes to develop your family history skills. 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. Have you already attended Stage 1 of this course? Then Stage 2 is the next step, teaching you the standards and techniques that professional genealogists use. Over the weeks, 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. No experience at all but want to get started? Stage 1 introduces all the basic records and teaches you how to use them. Some success in tracing your family but want to be better? These classes move you forward. Learn about a range of records that are available and, more importantly, learn the best ways to use them. Considering becoming a professional genealogist? These classes are an excellent way to build on your knowledge. Learn the standards required of genealogists and the essential techniques for searching and analysis. Why evening classes? Evening classes can be a great way to study genealogy. Away from all the other pressures of life for two hours, you can focus on how to find your ancestors and flesh out your family’s history. You’ll spend time with other people in the class that share your interests and are as keen as you are to learn new skills. Most of us enjoy meeting and learning from expert genealogists and we find others’ ancestry almost as fascinating as our own.
