Are you fairly new to family history or been researching for less than three years? Do you know the basics, but need some ongoing support to develop your core research skills?

In SAG’s new online course, Beginners Research Methods, you will work on your own family history under the guidance of Danielle Lautrec over a period of eight months. Included in the course are two lectures, two workshops and six group discussion sessions (fourteen contact hours in total). Danielle will teach you to plan your research, identify research priorities and research questions, cite your sources and other important research skills. Each technique will be applied to your own family history, to help you progress your research.

Prior completion of the SAG’s Beginners Course (or comparable course) is recommended, but is not essential.
