Register for July 2020 Courses

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers online genealogical education for family history enthusiasts, genealogy researchers and historians. These courses are rated in Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced levels. You can register for any course individually, or save by choosing from a variety of available packages. See Full List of Packages here: https://www.genealogicalstudies.com/eng/packages.asp 

The Start Dates for courses are usually scheduled for the first Monday of the month, however, not all courses are available monthly. Be sure to check our Current Course Calendar  for when the course of your choice is scheduled to be opened again.

In the list of courses scheduled for July 2020, there are four courses covering the Colonial period of the Eastern United States. These are valuable resources for anyone researching in this area and time frame.

Research: Mayflower Ancestors
This course studies some of the very first settlers of Massachusetts. Learn how to properly document a descendant line by utilizing New England original and derivative records as well as sources specific to Mayflower research. Following their story and tracing each generation is a great way to celebrate the 400th year anniversary of their arrival to North America.
Course Description: https://www.genealogicalstudies.com/eng/courses.asp?courseID=265 
Note: This course is currently being offered in our list of discounted courses. Receive 50% off by using the Code: ngs50. Code expires on 30 June 2020. See Discount details here: http://blog.genealogicalstudies.com/2020/05/discount-codes-for-may-and-june-2020/

Research: US Colonial New England Ancestors
This course explores strategies for finding Colonial New England records while incorporating colonial town records, colonial census records, colonial land records and maps, the colonial wars, religious records, and court documents. Note: This is an Intermediate course.
Course Description: https://www.genealogicalstudies.com/eng/courses.asp?courseID=503 

The American Revolutionary War was a major historical event which impacted many Colonial families. It is hard to imagine that any family was left unaffected. Many families were divided, with multiple factors leading to which side they chose to pledge their loyalty to. If you reach a brick wall in your research during this time period, be sure to check both Loyalist and Patriot resources. Sometimes you will find family members on both sides. This was a time of major migrations and relocations. Fortunately, they left many records. We just need to document their stories.

Research: United Empire Loyalist Ancestors
This course describes what it meant to be a United Empire Loyalist in the context of the American Revolutionary War and how it affected their ensuing lives. We also discuss the membership and lineage requirements of the United Empire Loyalists Association of Canada. Records include: military, claims, land, and other records that will assist with documenting your UEL ancestor. British North American colonies where the Loyalists came for resettlement include Upper Canada (Ontario)—where the original U.E. (Unity of Empire) tradition took hold—the Maritime provinces and Lower Canada (Quebec).
Course Description: https://www.genealogicalstudies.com/eng/courses.asp?courseID=315 

US: Military Records
This course covers conflicts of the United States and colonial America from the early colonial wars of the seventeenth century to the Second World War. The Revolutionary War records are included in Module 3. Note: This is an advanced course.
Course Description: https://www.genealogicalstudies.com/eng/courses.asp?courseID=215

Course Packages
Registration for these four courses could be submitted as Course Package – 4 Courses: https://www.genealogicalstudies.com/eng/packages.asp?packageID=40
