For the month of April, we have highlighted some of the 225+ genealogy and research courses offered at The National Institute for Genealogical Studies. There are a variety of themes and topics to choose from. Hopefully, we will feature some courses that you were not aware of and pique your interest to explore further.
H is for HERITAGE
Similar to searching for Family, Heritage takes your research a step farther to record their legacy, to preserve and share life events with significance. It may include pride in the accomplishments of our ancestors, or in their origins and ancestry. “Heritage” can have different meanings, but it always celebrates our family history. We inherit our heritage from our ancestors, but unless it is shared to the next generation, it can easily be forgotten. Family historians and genealogists strive to discover and preserve our family’s history, revealing the historical events our families experienced in their lifetime.
The National Institute offers many courses to research our ethnic origins through the country-themed packages and certificates. The following courses will take a deeper look into their lives and help you to share what you discover.
