Online Genealogy course
« on: Thursday 16 April 20 13:07 BST (UK) »
 Hello all.

Has anybody done an online genealogy course?

Can anyone recommend one to do?

Or are they not worth doing.

I have been researching my family history for 15+ years every now and then due to family and work.

Thanks

There is a course online that the centre of excellence are doing.

Just wondered if worth doing or not.

Or if anyone has done any that are worth doing or not.

I would look at those training suppliers who are more recognised within the genealogical community:

For a course covering a range of topics,and at varying levels, then look at those run by the IHGS  -

https://www.ihgs.ac.uk/courses


Of if you want to do a shorter course on a more specific aspect of research, then I would recommend the courses run by Pharos:

https://www.pharostutors.com/

If you want to be more academic, then the genealogy programme run by Strathclyde University is highly regarded. The University of Dundee also has a Family History programme of courses.
