As I sit here pondering my future, I play with the idea of enrolling in a post graduate university course in genealogy. The course looks great and has many interesting topics but is it worth my time and cost? My time, yes, it could help save much valuable time for my own personal research. Costs, well that is where I come unstuck. Study is not cheap and I'm looking for a change in career from scientific research, I need to choose wisely. For those that are fortunate to be working as a genealogist or local historian, are you able to share a bit of your life experience on how you got to where you are today?
