Learn With Sarah
If you are in need of help in starting family history research, help with something you have encountered whilst doing your family tree or if you would like to have me do all of the work for you, then this is where you want to be.
One Day Workshops
Focusing on Scottish sources, my workshops include a classroom element with group activities including an interactive example of how to go about building a family tree as well as a question and answer session.
By the end of the day, you will be able:
- start tracing your Scottish ancestors and build a family tree
- analyze relevant documents to help build a family tree
- identify common mistakes in family history research and ways to avoid them
Dates and venues for the next one-day workshops:
Queensferry High School, Edinburgh – date to be confirmed (10am – 3pm)
Queen Anne High School, Dunfermline – date to be confirmed (10am – 3pm)
To book a place at Queensferry High School, go to www.joininedinburgh.org.
My 5-week evening classes are designed to give complete beginners the tools and skills needed to learn about genealogy and family history.
Using PowerPoint presentations and interactive learning, you will be introduced to the main types of documents necessary to uncover your ancestors, learn about databases and indexes and learn more about the common pitfalls found in research.
Please contact Sarah for more information.
One To One Tuition
I help people who want to learn how to research their family history. This can be done by showing you how to use the ScotlandsPeople database at the Centre in Edinburgh or to help you when you hit a brick wall. I will not do the research for you but will point you in the right direction and make suggestions on how to progress with your research.
