King’s is working with some of the most prestigious British and international institutions to bring you King’s Summer Weekends for the intellectually curious. This stimulating and informative bite-size course is designed to fit around your personal and professional commitments.
Tracing your family tree and learning more about your ancestors has become a national passion, but many family historians soon find that internet research gives limited results, with simple lists of names and dates often being all that is available.
This course is for everyone who wants to expand their research into their family tree. It combines instruction on practical researching techniques with academic insight into how key historic events shape stories across generations. It is designed to help participants better read the information they discover, expand their investigation beyond the internet to include historical archives and guide them in their interpretation of details such as professions and social status to make their own journeys into their family’s history as rewarding and revealing as possible.
The registration deadline is 20 July 2018. For more information about the programme, please visit our webpage. Alternatively follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for up to date information about the Summer Programmes Team.
