Foundation Course in Irish Family History – Summer Term

The popular collaboration between City Colleges and Accredited Genealogists Ireland will run the Certificate in Family History Foundation Course during the summer term. The aim is to deliver comprehensive courses in family history research for the dedicated amateur and budding professional alike.

The “Professional Certificate in Family History Research” takes place online every Thursday evening from 27th April 2023, over the course of ten weeks.  Lectures are given by AGI members who are recognised experts in their field.

Students are introduced to the building blocks of genealogy:

  • Civil records
  • Church records
  • Census records

In addition they then guided through exciting resources, ranging from land surveys to historic newspapers.

Each lecture has time for discussion and questions, and workshops bring it all to life. Minor projects during the course reinforce taught principles and in the final weeks each student has the opportunity to compile their own miniature genealogical report with the professional edge learned during the course.
