Introduction to Family History Online

If you are bored during lockdown and fancy taking up a new hobby, why not have a go at tracing your family tree?  The Feelgood Factory is moving its ever-popular Introduction to Family History course online starting on the 18th February.  The cost is £50 which includes access to the online course that can be completed at your own pace, four video meetings with other groups members, one individual video advice session at the end of the programme and a course booklet.  No experience necessary but you will need access to a computer and the internet.
