"It was a fantastic moment when I got the email from Sean at Ancestry Institutional Support," said Nick Walton, Telematics tutor for the course. "I fully expected us to have to pay for access to the site.  Instead Ancestry have recognised our status as a registered charity working in a disadvantaged neighbourhood.  It's been a wonderful resource to use during the course."
