Recent discussion on educational opportunities in Family History research 
led me to research what is available for my specific focus of English 
research. I have ordered maps, etc. from the Institute of Heraldic and 
Genealogical Studies in Kent, England, but have only recently begun to look 
at their correspondence courses, "Diploma" and "Higher Certificate." Has 
anyone pursued these courses? Are there any thoughts regarding how this 
route of education is viewed by other professionals? By prospective clients? 
In addition to the correspondence course one might also self-educate and 
then take the examinations and do the appropriate assignments to prove 
skill. It reminds me a bit of certification and accreditation. Candidates 
may further move on to complete a dissertation and receive "Licentiateship 
of the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies (L.H.G.)." More 
information here: 

Thanks in advance if anyone has pursued this or other English based 
education opportunities.
