The course is aimed at beginners who want to get started with genealogy. Under expert guidance, it provides basic knowledge of how to start genealogy research, which books you will benefit from and which archives contain the information you are looking for. From the very beginning, you get to work practically with searching the archives with the help of a computer, which you have at your disposal throughout the course. Teacher-led teaching is interspersed with discussion and own practical work.
Archive Digital is mainly used as a database in addition to some other databases. You can buy the course book "The Road to Your Roots" (Ewa Nilsson) for about SEK 220. As a prior knowledge, you should have basic computer skills. After the course, you will have the opportunity to subscribe to ArkivDigital "All in one" 13 weeks at a reduced price.
