In this course, you will learn how to get started with tracing your UK ancestors. The course mainly focuses on England and Wales, but there will also be a brief section on the differences between Scottish and Irish records, and where to find them. Each section covers a different type of research or resource, and you will be able to start building your family tree while you are proceeding through the course.
This course is for anyone who would like to learn how to trace their UK ancestry but does not have an idea of how or where to start. This course will instruct you in how to begin, starting with asking your own family and studying old photographs, through to the most important online sources, including civil registration records, census records, and parish registers.
The course will use instructional videos, and also screen flows where you will be able to watch as I carry out my research, showing you the necessary procedures and how to deal professionally with any problems that occur.
If you have ever wondered about who your ancestors were, and how you can begin to find out, then this course is for you.
