Certificate in Genealogical Research
The Certificate in Genealogical Research course was introduced in 2010. This is undertaken over an 18 month period and requires successful completion of 8 components of work. Candidates must be financial members of the SAG when undertaking the course and it has been designed so that members who live outside of the Sydney area can participate. Good internet access is important as all work is despatched and received by email.
