Online Australian Genealogy Courses Start Feb 7th

Christmas and New year are over, the kids are back at school, so why not do something for yourself, and expand your knowledge on how to find and utilise Australian records to a greater degree, by taking a online course?

The following is a Press Release that I have been sent from the National Institute of Genealogical Studies:

“Louise St. Denis, Managing Director of the National Institute for Genealogical Studies, has just announced the new Australian Records Certificate courses which are now available at <>. The Institute offers courses via distance education, using the Internet. This allows students to study at their own pace, at the time and place convenient for them.

Last November, Louise visited many cities in Australia and New Zealand as part of the ‘Unlock the Past’ History and Genealogy Roadshow. At that Roadshow, Louise announced the appointment of Kerry Farmer as Director, Australian Studies, with the company.

The first course to be offered is “Australia: Births, Deaths and Marriages”, which will start on February 7, 2011. The other course offered is “Research: Australian and New Zealand Ancestors”, starting on same day. More courses covering the range of Australian records will become available as the year progresses.

For those undertaking another certificate program (for example, in English or Irish records), various elective courses will also be available, some covering a broad spectrum of Australian records but in less detail. Any of the courses can also be taken independently.

To read a detailed description about a specific course, please go to our website at <>, click on the menu item “COURSES”, and click on “COURSES” again. Then click on “ALPHABETICAL LISTING” to make searching through over 60 courses being given in February a little easier!

If you need more information, please call us toll-free in North America at 1-800-580-0165, or send us a message at <>.

You can enroll in these or other courses by simply going to the Institute’s website at <>, choosing the ones which interest you, and registering online.

    It ist very important for me, please help me.

    Thanks a lot !

  2. Hi Kevin, Many thanks for your inquiry. As there are 1000s of people research their family history in Australia, I’m sorry I don’t know who you’re looking for. I don’t know of any Professor of Genealogy. If you knew a name or where they were from (which state) that would help narrow it down, but it’s just too broad to try. You could get in touch with the University of Tasmania (UTAS) who offers the Diploma course for Family History, and see if they can help. All the best.

  3. Am retiring in November 2017 and would like to study/research family history next year 2018 Wham would you suggest?
