Somerset Skills and Learning are offering their latest range of Family History courses at the Boden Centre in Chard.

Family History is a popular hobby and people are invited to come along and join a class - with day courses starting at 10am and finishing at 4pm with a break for lunch.

A Pre-1837 record course runs on Friday, April 27, and Friday, May 4, looking at parish records, poor law, wills and probate, maps and old photos.

Past students have asked for an organising, writing up and presenting course, planned for Saturday, April 21 and Saturday, May 19.

This course is not for beginners but for those who have been researching their family for some time and have collected a lot of material and want to sort it out.

For more information call Rose at the Boden Centre on 01460-63900.
