R is for… Read, Read, Read and Learn #AtoZChallenge

While trying to research your family history, it can be difficult to know where to start and, when you have started, difficult to know where to progress to. I found myself in this position so started looking for ways to improve my knowledge. I found Pharos courses in the back of a family history magazine and joined their mailing list, before signing up to their The National Archives Website and Catalogue course.

The courses are run online, with a forum, live chat sessions and task to carry out each week and you have access to the tutor who, in this case, works at TNA. I really enjoyed the course and it was one of the main reasons I decided to actually visit the archives myself – I’m not sure I would have had the gumption or know-how to go otherwise.

I am currently looking at a few more of their courses – in fact I’ve seen one about churchyards and memorial inscriptions that I think will be useful in the coming months!

  1. Such a wonderful choice of topic for R. True we can learn a lot only when we read and are willing to learn.
