What’s next?

Tahitia McCabe, your lead educator, is the Course Leader on the MSc in Genealogical Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies. If you would like further details about this particular programme you can register your interest here.

This course is brought to you by the University of Strathclyde, which offers a range of taught Masters and research degrees, individual modules and short courses. We’ll also be holding a Google Hangout if you want to find out more information about the genealogy courses the University runs - you’ll find out more about this in Week 6.

Next week we will be looking at different searching techniques including some ways to think laterally for your information on your family. We will be thinking about how to create a research strategy and the importance of defining what it is you are looking for. Names will be explored as well; their history, how changing spellings can cause problems and how different pronunciations can contribute to confusion and transcription differences.
