Do you want to start climbing your family tree but are not sure where to begin? Have you heard family stories that you want to confirm? This intensive two-day course will show you how to start researching your family history through your computer - where to go, what you might find out, and how this leads you to further information.

You will learn how to use birth, marriage and death certificates as the starting point and through two visits to the National Library you will become familiar with other available resources - like newspapers, wills and photographs.

Computers will be available for your use or you are welcome to bring your own device.

What to bring: Photocopies of any certificates or documents you could use as a starting point for your research.

Target audience:
This course will be of interest to anyone who wants to learn how to start researching their family history. Computer skills are an advantage but not a requirement.
