The National Institute for Genealogical Studies has several virtual meetings scheduled this week. PLEASE NOTE: there has been a CHANGE in the start times for the American and the Analysis & Skills Mentoring-Part 2 Article Review sessions (see below). We hope you will join us, if applicable to your studies and/or research. Details are outlined below.
You can enhance your learning experience by joining a virtual meeting regarding your studies and asking questions. Even if you don’t have questions, you are welcome to just listen, lurk and learn! We don’t mind in the least!
Remember, these Virtual Meetings are NOT mandatory. They are a fun and interactive way to ask questions about the courses and/or research at a relevant session.
Below are the scheduled sessions for 11-14 January 2022.
