Genealogy and Family History: an Introduction

Two ten-week courses to learn how to trace your ancestors, find out about their lives and build a family tree.  The course will look primarily at Scottish sources, how to access them and how to use what you find.  There will be a visit to Register House (the Scotland’s People Centre) which will costs approximately £10 which is not included in the course fee.  A very basic knowledge of computers and the internet would be useful but not essential.
The tutor will be Alex Wood, an experienced genealogist and teacher, who has been teaching these highly successful courses for the last 12 years.

The courses will take place on Mondays, one from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm and one from 6.45 pm to 8.45 pm, in Wester Hailes Education Centre, Murrayburn Drive, Edinburgh, and will run from 24 September to 10 December.
