FutureLearn Course

For those who enjoyed FutureLearn's Genealogy course, and have Scottish ancestry, this may be of interest:

The course is free of charge.

This course finishes on the 27th of August, 2017 so not long now before it comes to an end. However, if you want to pay £69 it will continue in definitely.

N.B. The courses usually run again in a few months so you can wait and it will then be free :)

I have just completed the same course. I did pay for the upgrade because personal circumstances have left me short of time to go back over the course and pick out relevant points from both the course and student discussions. As a result I received my certificate today which is a by product of paying for the upgrade!!

The rerun of this course is due next February. I would recommend every Forum member to take part in this course, no matter how experienced you are. The lecture on DNA was especially informative and the website links that resulted from both the course and student discussions are invaluable. Students participated from all over the world. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would consider re taking it next time because different students will throw up different talking points etc.

Definitely Pete, it has put me back on the straight and narrow!

Illness and Family commitments had left my research in a mess - now my winter is planned

Just to say that I’ve had an email saying that this course will start again on 5 February 2018. Given all of he feedback here I think I’ll enroll this time around.

You will need to allow more time each week than is suggested for the course because of all the comments posted by students, which I found very helpful.
I would also suggest you need to be able to keep up to date with the course because there will be at least one live Q&A session. Last time it was on DNA and sadly I missed it.

Thanks for that, Sally. I think I’ll pay so that I can study at my own speed. What with working full-time, three hours commuting each day and family life, genealogy doesn’t always get a look-in!
