Wills are a wonderful source for genealogists- they can give you not only family relationships but also an idea of how our ancestors lived and even who they liked or disliked. The course will show you how wills can help you research your family, how to find them and their associated documents and practical advice on how to interpret the handwriting. Reading exercises will be included to give you hands on experience to reading wills. Useful for correspondence course students approaching lectures 7 and 8 and those who wish to practice their palaeography.

Most of us will have ancestors who served in the armed forces at some time. Military records can give invaluable insight not only into your ancestor's life whilst in the military but can also give essential genealogical information to help extend your family tree. The course will cover records from the 18th-21st centuries and will discuss both online and original sources.
The day will be led by Les Mitchinson, a professional genealogist and Tutor on The Institute's Correspondence Course, who also specialises in military records.
"This was a very good course which was both interesting and informative. It exceeded my expectations. I have learned a great deal" (2012 attendee).
