Courses Overview

The Correspondence Course In Genealogy

The course, which is suitable both for beginners and for experienced genealogists, is also designed to prepare students for professional genealogical practice. As such it covers the full range of genealogically useful sources to considerable depth. This also makes it the best available course for those simply tracing their own families as a hobby, ensuring that they have the best knowledge base so that their research is as good as it can be.

The course is continually assessed with all assignments graded. Those students wishing to take the Higher Certificate in Genealogy examination may opt to have their grades for assignments put forward instead of taking the second paper. The Correspondence Course is both challenging and demanding, but the principal qualifications for embarking on it are enthusiasm and dedication.
