I am currently on the IHGS (The Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies) Correspondence Course and thought it would be good to record my progress, my ups and downs as I progress through the course. This is mainly for my own benefit but may well be useful for others looking at doing a Genealogy/Family History course.
I have been doing the course now since the end of September last year but due to personal circumstances have yet to finish the first assignment. However, writing this blog should give me the impetus I need to progress on the course.
I am finding this first assignment quite challenging but very interesting and thought provoking. It is to write an autobiography, something your great grandchildren would find interesting. I am nearly half way through my life and have already done nearly 7,000 word. Plan to make marked progress tomorrow.
