Whilst Treetops is closed (due to Covid restrictions) we are unable to offer our range of courses or workshops. Please revisit this page when we re-open for an update.
Meantime, if you would like to register interest in one of our future courses / workshops, or have suggestions of topics you would find useful please Contact Us (select Education from the drop-down list) and we will register your interest and suggestions.
When we can re-offer these, our courses have practical hints and tips, handouts, where to go for more information, looking & working with examples of documents. We also make full use of the library & collections in the Treetops Research Centre. You are encouraged to bring any of your own research with you so that we can discuss any problems as a group.
We will offer a beginners course to help get you started and to cover topics such as census returns, civil registrations and the GRO index.
Other subjects might include
- Writing up your research
- Using the internet for your research
- Wills and Probate
- Dating photographs
There is a charge for our courses. You do not need to be a member of Dorset Family History Society or have Dorset roots to attend our Courses.
There will be short breaks during each course for tea / coffee which will be available at a small charge.
