Genealogy Diploma Level 3

Genealogy Diploma

Genealogy Diploma - 360 hours course by NCC Home Learning

Family history research is said to be the fastest-growing hobby in the UK, as well as being the second most popular topic on the internet. Tracing ancestors seems to go deeper than the average hobby, fulfilling some sort of basic need to get to know our origins and, presumably, understand ourselves better in the process. It can certainly throw up some great stories, quotable even outside your own family circle, and provide no end of fun and pleasure.

This diploma assumes that you have no prior knowledge of family history or this type of research. It will guide you, step by step, through the process of tracing your own or someone else’s family tree and history. We are all the accumulation of the genes, characteristics, and behaviours of our ancestors. This diploma is for anyone who has ever wondered about his or her ancestors; how they looked, what they did for a living and how they behaved. It is also ideal for anyone who is keen to pursue the discipline of genealogy in a professional capacity and wants to learn more about what is involved.

I am almost half way through a diploma in genealogy and am really enjoying the course. I have not studied for many years and was apprehensive at first. However, the course material is easy to read and the assessments re-inforce my learning. I would highly recommend NCC to others wishing to study.

I am coming to the end of this course now and have really enjoyed it. The material provided is generally well written and broken down into appropriately structured modules. There is enough work to do in the assignments that you feel like you are achieving something worthwhile, but at the same time, not so much that they can't be done around othe...
