About the course

Discover how your ancestors shaped the world around you with a Genealogy Course at Paston College. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced in conducting family history research, this course will encourage you to consider a range of rich resources, new techniques and creative expression in relation to your research. You will have the opportunity to design and carry out a mini project and to present your work to the class in a format of your choosing.

We will discuss key sources, approaches and themes in family history research. Practical exercises will include an introduction to using libraries, archives and online resources in the college computer lab.
We will also consider creative examples of family history in contemporary literature, as well as the unique context of the college and local history resources such as The Paston Treasure.

For your first session please bring with you a pen/pencil and notebook.
