A Grovelling Apology
Apologies for the radio silence over the last twelve months. It really has been a dreadful year for me, in which I’ve had very little time at all. However, things should have calmed down by the end of this month, and then the Blog and I will return.
In the next few weeks, I’ll tidy the Blog up a bit and update some of the pages
I had intended to kickstart the Blog into life again with a series of posts on how to write your family history, but this will go on the back burner for a few months.
A Free Online Genealogy Course
On 14 March, a free online genealogy course starts, run by FutureLearn. I’ve taken FutureLearn courses before – they are completely free, with no hidden extras. You can buy a Certificate of Completion at the end, but you don’t have to.
The course lasts for six weeks, and is estimated to take about four hours each week. Each week’s learning is divided into smaller modules, so you can learn at your own pace (though I’ve found in the past it’s best to get ahead a little on week one, so that you have time to read at least some of the input from other students. It’s aimed at anyone who has an interest in genealogy, whether beginner or experienced.
During the course, I’ll be using the Blog to muse on what I’ve learned each week, with any additional tips or hints.
