Following Government guidelines we regret to announce that we are cancelling all day courses and workshops until Easter 2020. We will continue to review the situation.
Our distance learning courses are continuing as normal.
Regular one-day courses are held in Canterbury on a wide range of topics covering both genealogy and heraldry.
IHGS is easy to visit with two train stations only a 10 minute walk away. Canterbury is only a 55 minute train journey from St Pancras International Station. More details on how to find us and travelling to Canterbury are available in our information for visitors section.
Our courses are open to all with beginners' courses suitable for those who have just started to trace a family history or who wish to refresh their memories in the basic sources.
Courses covering several advanced topics are available for students who have basic knowledge of genealogy. Opportunities to gain practical experience are provided where possible and both online and original sources are discussed.
All the courses are taught by our experienced tutors and members of staff. For some courses, experts in particular areas of research will be invited to lecture.
