International Institute of Genealogical Studies - LEADERS IN ONLINE GENEALOGY EDUCATION

Research A-Z ~ Librarianship

For the month of April, we have highlighted some of the 225+ genealogy and research courses offered at The International 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.

Genealogical Research from A to Z


What would we do without Libraries? They are not only a place to find books, but also many special collections, such as newspapers, maps, local authors, and much, much more. Thanks to the Internet, many libraries now have digital collections as well, which can be browsed through online catalogues. Libraries may have also created useful research guides and finding aids located on their websites. 

Don’t forget academic libraries, and also genealogy or historical societies, whose collections are often housed in a local library. State or provincial libraries may be the repository for large record collections. Be sure to check them all to identify what is available. Remember – if there was a boundary change, records may be held in the original location.

Library staff and volunteers, as well as researchers and historians, will all benefit from these International Institute courses.
