Have you always wanted to find out more about your ancestors but don’t know where to start? If so, then this is the ideal course as it will help you to begin building and developing your own family tree from scratch. It is also suitable for those who have already begun to research their family tree but would like to learn more about genealogical records and how to research databases more effectively.
This course focuses primarily on British family history research. Students will learn how to effectively search a number of subscription and free genealogical websites, as well as use and interpret the 1939 register, the census, civil records, military records and wills and probate.
This distance learning course enables you to study from home and participate in an online community of other students learning about genealogy. The module is delivered through Blackboard, our online learning environment and a live webinar will be held at the end of the module. Wherever possible, alternative free resources are highlighted, and the majority of the subscription websites used are available to access for free through local public library services. Some of the online resources referred to during this course do require a subscription, if accessed from home.
From Acorn to Oak, Part One can be studied as a stand-alone course, but it is also the first core module, of three, for the Certificate of Higher Education in Genealogical Studies at Aberystwyth University.
