    Diploma of Family History [R2H]


    Family history is for everybody. We all have stories in our family tree waiting to be told. The Diploma of Family History will give you essential knowledge and tools to bring the past to life through tracing your family experiences and understanding the historical forces that shaped them.

    Taught by leading scholars in family history, and specialists in Australian, European and Asian histories, this practical course will assist you in exploring your family's past and enable you to become more proficient and comfortable in a digital environment.

    The Diploma teaches core skills in contemporary family history to research your ancestors and others, including planning and conducting online research, locating and managing historical data, and writing compelling family histories.

    You'll learn how to use oral history, family heirlooms and photographs, as well as physical and digital archives to illuminate your family's past. The Diploma of Family History focuses on understanding individual lives in their wider historical contexts, through investigating the impacts of events such as war, convict transportation, and migration.
