I wanted help with structuring and putting together some 30 years’ worth of research on my family. The course has helped me find ways to structure what I have, and - more than that! - it has helped me improve my writing. Peter is a first rate teacher: very positive, encouraging and helpful. Thanks!

Without the patient advice of our tutor Peter Reedman, I would have produced a time-wasting boring account of an interesting family. It has taken many long hours but, thanks to Peter, my descendants might actually read it now. Thanks also to my fellow students for their contributions - they helped. I am looking forward to another interesting and challenging U3A Online course.

Peter’s patience has helped me and I suspect, members of our group deal with different and difficult aspects of the course. His prompt replies and suggestions have been appreciated and always helpful. I still am not confident with Blackboard technology and Evaluation online but that won’t stop me from taking another course with U3A.

There is no more indecision, I am on the way to writing the kind of family history I believed possible but didn’t know how to do it. I now have a plan for writing and publishing my family group\\'s history. The exercises have been excellent in developing skills in writing and interview techniques.

I found this course extremely good. Surpassed my expectations. Peter is a good tutor and interaction with other people also good. It all started to make more sense as I finished Unit 5.

I had started a biography awhile ago but ran out of steam. This course and some of the tutor’s helpful comments have given me a new incentive to get started with writing again.

I always enjoy these courses. Not only are they good for the brain and, as most of us are older folk we need stimulation, you meet such a lot of nice people. The tutors are always helpful. I shall do more courses with U3A Online.

Yes. This was my first on line course with a leader. I found it mind opening. I liked the step by step introduction of the exercises followed by the advices and suggestions of the tutor. Reading the other students’ exercises together with the leader’s comments was most instructive.

A well-planned course, an excellent tutor - very enthusiastic and encouraging - and participating students. I’m sure we all got a lot from the course. No difficulties with technology or time management. It’s a pity the course didn’t run for longer as I feel we have only made a start. However, it has been a good start.

I have found it good to combine this course with Autobiography and Journalling which I did first. The two courses complement each other very well. Both were stimulating and enjoyable.

The course helped me to clarify my ideas. Peter’s comments were always constructive and helpful. I think I will go on to produce a modest volume for family consumption, which I would not have contemplated without this course.

The course gave practical advice about organising oneself to work. Our tutor was always on the ball quick with helpful criticism and encouragement. I had not worked with a group before and found their encouragement confidence building and very rewarding. Full marks

I really enjoy writing, (Creative Writing, U3A) playing the piano (classical), painting (watercolour) and living. Distance and the ‘wet’ seasons were a problem but U3A and technology have given me contact with the ‘outside world’.

I began writing my family history about 10 years ago, and became bogged down - too much data. This course opened the door for me again. I intend to self-publish as it is intended for family and friends, but am interested in ‘publishing’ in the future.
