  Introduction
   
  There are numerous courses aimed at helping beginners to research their family trees.  A sprinkling of record offices also run courses aimed at beginners, as do a few family history societies. The Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies (located in Canterbury) runs a whole series of courses including several aimed at beginners. The Society of Genealogists (located in central London) runs several short courses/tutorials on specific topics of interest to beginners as well as the more experienced family historians. If you can afford the time and money, an attractive option is to attend one of the residential beginner courses.
