Description

King's Summer Weekend with The National Archives
Family History: Practical Techniques and Historical Insight

Tracing your family tree and learning more about your ancestors has become a national passion, but many family historians soon find that internet research gives limited results, with simple lists of names and dates often being all that is available.

This course is for everyone who wants to expand their research into their family tree. It combines instruction on practical researching techniques with academic insight into how key historic events shape stories across generations. It is designed to help participants better read the information they discover, expand their investigation beyond the internet to include historical archives and guide them in their interpretation of details such as professions and social status to make their own journeys into their family's history as rewarding and revealing as possible.

Join us onsite at The National Archives in Kew and at King's College London's Strand Campus to find out how to delve deeper into your family's past and progress your investigations into your family tree. This summer weekend will build your skills with practical instruction on researching techniques and explain the social changes that influenced the historical data you are uncovering.

Who is this course for?
This course is for those who have begun investigating their family history and will help them take the next step and delve further into available records. There will be some basic information covered, but the focus will be on moving beyond online searches and exploring the social history surrounding family trees.

The registration deadline is 4 August 2017. For more information, please email summer@kcl.ac.uk
