The beginning of another month brings more courses opening on the first Monday at The International Institute of Genealogical Studies. As the season changes, our students have prepared to continue their online education with their chosen courses. We have new students taking the plunge into genealogical education for the first time, while others are picking up again after taking a break from their studies for various reasons. Even one month to the next brings transitions. Look around – it is the season for change.
The Institute offers 225+ genealogy and research courses. Some are available monthly; Others are only offered at certain times of the year. See our course calendar for which courses will open next month.
Where are you in your genealogy journey? Are you beginning a new project, or starting to research a new topic? Whether you are gathering background information, investigating new resources, making and implementing a research plan, celebrating new discoveries, or solving mysteries, persevere to achieve the objectives you have set. We know that there are no guarantees to find the records we are searching for (they may not have survived!), however, we remain hopeful and seek out new sources.
Have you been stalled in your research? Sometimes, we have to step back and look from a different perspective. Other times, we just don’t know where to look next. Check our list of courses and see if there is one for a topic you are unfamiliar with to learn about new resources. Making a fresh Research Plan can breathe new life into your research project. Discovering a new website or historical collection may result in a genealogy happy dance!
Are you letting go of one project to join a new genealogy adventure? Transitions can be bittersweet, but they offer endless opportunities for new discoveries! Celebrate past victories, but always face new challenges with enthusiasm and optimism. You never know what you will uncover in your next research venture. Whether it is a career change or a research focus, be sure to prepare and gather the specific tools you need for a smooth transition.
New Beginnings. Fresh Start. Transitions. Whatever your online education goals are, we wish you success as you navigate the next season in your genealogy journey!
