Course Overview

Have you ever looked at a photo of long-lost family members and wondered how they lived, and what their lives were like? You’re not alone; genealogy is fast becoming one of the most popular pastimes in the UK, as well as being the second most popular topic on the internet, thanks to recent TV programmes and online resources.

On this comprehensive course, you’ll be guided step-by-step through the process of tracing family lines back hundreds of years, and explore the range of records and resources used to compile a complete family tree. You’ll delve into the fascinating history of surnames, and even discover how to track down any noble ancestors you never knew you had! You don’t need any previous knowledge or experience to enrol, and you can study in your own time, at your own pace.
