Last week I took the plunge and enrolled in the Australian Records Certificate through the National Institute for Genealogical Studies who work in affiliation with the Continuing Education Division of the University of St. Michael's College in the University of Toronto.
I have paid for the basic level section of the course - a total of 9 subjects, with another 9 to follow in the intermediate and then 11 in advanced sections. I can then choose several electives. Of course, it is the electives that interest me most, but I thought I should start at the beginning.
I have only enrolled in one subject this month - Australia: Births, Deaths and Marriages but think I'll try 2 next month. My Australian research so far has not lead me to South Australia, so already I've learnt a little about the history of South Australia.
I hope it does't mean I won't get my own research done!
