We’ve got some great Virtual Meetings coming up in the month of August. We have a Lecturing Skills student presenting later in the month, as well as Daniel Horowitz of MyHeritage joining us in the Student Lounge to talk about DNA Matching Technology on MyHeritage. Hope you can join us!
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 August.
IMPORTANT: We have changed the platform for our virtual meetings. We are now using Zoom for all of our sessions. Please note the NEW URLs for this month’s sessions as outlined below.
