Free Course starting Monday
« on: Saturday 17 October 20 22:47 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone

I have just joined the board - very impressive - looking forward to having a few chats and learning a great deal from your experiences.

I am just about to jump in and start researching my family tree and i am basically a complete novice so it should be a steep learning curve lol

Anyway i have found out about this feed course starting Monday 19th October - it may be helpful to a number of us newbies!

University of Strathclyde is hosting a free genealogy course soon via Genealogy Course - Research Your Family Tree Online - FutureLearn

heres a link to enroll

Yes that course has been run quite a few times, I did it when it came out for the first time several years ago and found it helpful. I believe that they have added stuff since then.
