Finally I have submitted the first assignments for my course! Knuckled down this week and got them finished and sent off yesterday. So I kinda missed my self-imposed deadline of Monday, but at least they are done. ( I’m doing the Higher Certificate in Genealogy by correspondence with the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies in Canterbury.) And I’ve already downloaded and read the next lecture and started some prep work for the next three assignments, one of which is the biography of a grandparent. I’m looking foward to this as it sounds like fun, and I shall be grilling my father and his siblings for information about my paternal grandfather. It would be a great exercise to do for my other grandparents as well, so might think of tackling them later on in the year.
It took me six months to complete that first lecture and its assignments – yikes! Am aiming to finish this next one within six weeks, and plan to schedule set times during the week for study time. Of course, my schedule will be all out the window come Easter school holidays, but hopefully I’ll have made a good start by then.
