The West Gauteng Branch of the Genealogical Society of South Africa held an Introductory Genealogical Training Course on 15 August 2009 at the Dutch Reformed Church Ontdekkerskruin, Philips Avenue, Discovery.
The course was well organised. Our usual venue was transformed into a lecture room. Each participant received a manual and a certificate.
- Background information;
- The working documents;
- Unpublished sources;
- Internet sources;
- Formal sources;
- Interesting facts and finally
- Presentation of one's research.
The course was well received, good value for money, and good attendance was an indication of the need for genealogical training courses. Participants had different levels of expertise. I believe that each person went away having learnt something new.
