What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
Supporting handouts and online links will be available throughout the course in the WEA's online platform CANVAS. Whilst mainly looking at sources for England and Wales, information for other countries will be included.
Course aim:
A collaborative course to refresh and review sources for Family, House and Local History. What's new, what's changed, what haven't you tried?
Course description:
New websites? New sources / transcription projects / ideas / strategies? There's always something waiting to be discovered, whether it's an avenue you haven't explored before or a resource that's new to you. This collaborate course guided by experienced Tutor, Jackie Depelle, will aim to help you find the trigger to extend and develop your Family, House and Local History research. Course members will be invited to make use of associated magazines and journals, Newsletters, Talks, Lectures, Seminars and Conference material, sharing what's caught their eye and been useful. There will also an opportunity to produce a personal project piece to motivate an interested and captive audience! Although it is envisaged students will have made a start on their research anyone new to all this will be welcome, join us to see what's going on out there - from Modern to Medieval.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. List three printed or online magazines or journals which have helped new research
2. Report on useful information from Local, National and International newsletters / blogs
3. Update the group on associated Lectures, Seminars, Conference material
4. Comment on any items in the course information blog which has aided my research
5. Produce a personal project piece to illustrate how the course content has triggered research
