Enhance your education and attend virtual meetings! Each month, The National Institute for Genealogical Studies hosts several virtual meetings, giving the students the ability to ask questions about the courses or research they are working on. Join a session applicable to your area of study or research to find answers. We can all learn from each other!
Virtual Meetings are a fun and interactive way to connect with an instructor and fellow students. They are NOT mandatory. If time permits, the host may provide a discussion or small presentation.
Below are the scheduled sessions for the month of April.
TO JOIN A VIRTUAL MEETING, see the Adobe Connect instructions available on our website (In the top menu > Information > Virtual Learning Room). Please obtain the INSTRUCTIONS document in PDF format near the top right of our Virtual Learning Room page. You may need to scroll to the right to see INSTRUCTIONS.
