have concentrated on this area. We continue to focus our work
within the Midlands, and hope to expand to other aeas within
the UK in the near future.
aim is to promote the study of genealogy and family history
with particular reference to people having lived in or been
associated with the United Kingdom"
consultants and lecturers have been teaching family history
since 2006 in a number of different venues, schools, colleges
universities, village halls, community centres, libraries,
record offices and museums. Because we have been doing this
at a 'grass roots level' we have gained an insight into the
needs of family history students. Our
whole approach to family history has been informed by this.
The idea for this website originated from students requests
for a central resource of information on the web. Similarly,
the Family History research packs and kits which we have developed
have been designed with students of all ages and levels in
mind, be they young or old, novice or expert. Indeed, almost
everything that we do at Family History Detectives is as a
direct result of our student's requests, and as a result we
feel that we understand their needs as they carry out research
into their family history.
