Training Courses

Beginners’ Family History Courses

You don’t have to be a member of the Society to participate and the courses, run by experienced volunteers, take place at our research room in Meltham.  Our courses are held on either Thursday mornings or Thursday evenings.  All courses run for six weeks, either from 9.45 am to 11.45 pm or 18.45 pm to 20.45 pm. The cost of the six-week course is £40 and this includes an Ancestral Notebook in which to record your findings.

We have a course starting in February 2024 and another one in April 2024, both of which are now fully booked. We expect to run more courses in September and November 2024 and we are happy to take names now.  Please use the Contact Form, via the button below, and select ‘Secretary’ to ask for more details.
