  • This course is for beginners and improvers

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Report on how the information included in a research guide on The National Archives website (or other National Archive) supported personal research
  • Share with the group a source which was especially useful for developing a family's female line
  • Illustrate the ability to read old handwriting by providing either an accurate transcript or an informal commentary of an original document
  • Demonstrate having created either an individual's timeline or a narrative report of their life with one associated photograph, not necessarily of a person
