Education
  • IHGS
    Genealogy, 2014 - present
    "The Correspondence Course in Genealogy was launched in 1961 and has been growing in popularity ever since. Students tell us that they find the course to be great value for money, being significantly less expensive than other distance learning courses with comparable academic content. The lecture material is excellent and the individual tutorial guidance is first-rate. Unlike other courses that have come and gone during the last four decades, the Correspondence Course in Genealogy encourages the student to apply the subject material to his or her own personal research. Our students also speak of the fun and enjoyment of following the course and how it has helped them to get over apparently insurmountable research problems. 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 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 Correspondence Course is both challenging and demanding, but the principal qualifications for embarking on it are enthusiasm and dedication."
