Family history research has seen a huge increase in recent years, fuelled by popular TV programmes such as the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?, and numerous websites that give access to census records and other official documents.
But for many people wanting to discover their past, it can seem daunting to know where to begin. Luckily, IWM and Pearson Love to Learn have created an interactive online course that will make everything clear.
The course teaches you where records are and how to search them, with expert advice given on how to compile your family tree.
It also includes detailed information, provided by IWM, which helps you locate and interpret military records online – building up an accurate picture of those who served in the British Army during the First World War.
