Nichelle, who took the history course 'Genealogy: Researching your Family Tree'' on FutureLearn

In 2013, I made my hobby, genealogy, into my career and started my own business called Copper Leaf Genealogy - the course on FutureLearn has helped my business to progress.

With me being interested in the Tudor and Plantagenet period, it was natural for me to join England in the Time of King Richard III. I thought I would whizz through this course quite easily but actually, I came to learn new things too; topics included food and cooking, death and burial, manuscripts and texts during Richard’s reign. So even though I knew his story I learned more about daily life at that time and I passed with 88%. I was very excited when I got my certificate in the post from Leicester University to put in my portfolio.
