Between September – November 2018, I ran a 10-week evening course called Genealogy: Researching Your Family History. The course was held in Ballymena, County Antrim and ran for 2 hours each week. Course participants were interested in visiting PRONI and getting a tour of the archives, so I arranged that for the first week in December. The course was aimed at a range of abilities, from beginners who had no experience to those who had been researching for a while but had come across brick walls or were interested in hearing about more sources to help with their research.
It was great to see how much people got out of the course and it was a lovely group who got on really well together. I got great satisfaction from teaching the course and got a real buzz out of seeing how much folk were enjoying this fascinating hobby.
Don’t just take my word for it, but have a look at at the feedback from the course that is in this video clip.
Dates have been agreed for next year – it will run each Monday from 16 Sep – 18 Nov 2019 in Ballymena and an additional date will be organised for a trip to PRONI. The course will cost £85 and full details will be posted on the website shortly.
