Course Update - Autumn Term

LMentary Family History & Education offers five levels of family history courses; catering for the absolute beginner through to post graduate, IHGS Diploma in Genealogy (DipGen). Last July one of my LMentary students received the Diploma in Genealogy at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies Awards Day. That student joined my level A 'Awaken' course in March 2010 and four years on is now a professionally qualified genealogist. I wonder if any of my new 'Awaken' students will be in that position in 2018/2019.

My Level D 'Delving Deeper' IHGS Higher Certificate, two-year course, resumes after the summer break. The course started in May, 2014, and we will cover parish registers, parish records, probate and palaeography this term. The course will complete in time for students to sit the 2016 Higher Certificate exam. A new two-year course will start in May 2015 if you are interested.

I am pleased to be running my second Level E 'Exploring the Archives' Diploma in Genealogy mentoring course. The twelve-session course starts on Wednesday the 17th September for students planning to sit the IHGS Diploma in Genealogy exam in June 2015.

I am running two Level A 'Awaken Your Ancestors' beginners courses; one locally in Petersfield and the second at Hampshire Record Office. There are still a few places left on each. My Level B 'Broadening Your Family Tree,' which starts on the 23rd September, has been fully booked for some time and I have delayed the start of my 25-week Certificate in Genealogy course until January.   This will allow time for the student to complete the level C course, sit the Certificate in Genealogy examination, and then spend time recuperating before committing to the May 2016 Higher Certificate course!
