We invite you to browse our brochures and handouts by downloading our pdf files, as if you were picking them up from our table. Then save them directly to your computer, instead of stashing them in your conference tote bag. Less to carry and easier to sort out at the end of the day.

We are anticipating record numbers of attendees again this year. There will be plenty of Learning opportunities to explore and you are sure to discover new topics presented by new speakers, along with many familiar offerings.

Remember – recorded sessions from past RootsTech conferences are also available.

Be sure to visit The National Institute for Genealogical Studies’ virtual booth in the Expo Hall to check out our Conference Discounts and download our handouts. The Expo Hall will open on Wednesday evening.

We are confident that no matter which courses you focus on this month, you will be Learning, Sharing and Preserving. Glean all you call and apply it to your family history projects!

Sometimes Waiting is Hard!

Do you like surprizes? The National Institute for Genealogical Studies has a secret! Watch for a Special Announcement coming next week. 

We don’t like waiting! As family historians, we must learn patience. We need to take our time when doing our research, following the steps we learned in the Methodology courses, and carefully examining each new clue or document. We start with what we know and document each generation before moving back to the previous generation. Making assumptions and jumping to the next generation impulsively will cost us valuable time. Learn patience. Work methodically. Be thorough.

Waiting is not foreign to genealogists. We know that some research questions will not be answered quickly or easily. We know that new areas of research with new record types will require our time to learn and understand what is and is not included. We know that a family mystery is not solved in an evening, and our research is never really “finished.” We learn patience, and perseverance.

We also like surprizes. When we make a discovery, no matter how small, we celebrate! We like puzzles. Each clue we find leads to making the “big picture” clearer. We like a challenge. If we hit a Brick Wall in our research, we will work to find the solution. Whether it takes learning about another resource, or taking another course to learn a new skill, we will work until we figure it out. 

Be patient. Follow the research principles that you have already learned and work through it. If you need to research a new topic, see if it is in our list of courses, and then add it to your list of electives. We want our students to succeed in their projects.

So, what is the Secret? You’ll have to be patient. The Special Announcement is coming next week.

Happy Mothers’ Day

It is time once again to honour our Mother and celebrate her special day. This has been a North American tradition since the early 1900s. Where would we be without Mom?

 

Tracing the women in our family tree may be relatively easy now, but the farther back we go, the more challenging it is to find their day-to-day activities being recorded. The valued records that were preserved tend to be about the legal issues within the family rather than the social aspects of their daily routines. Yet, her role was so important.

Grandmothers, Mothers and Daughters

Our female ancestors not only played significant roles in our lives; they played their part in historical events as well. Researching at times can be a challenge, but we need to ensure that we persevere and tell their stories. Their voice must be heard.

Start with home resources, family heirlooms, and treasured mementoes connected to milestone events. Such items remind us of the connections we have to the past generations, and they provide great clues to pursue in our research. What were her interests? Did she belong to a volunteer organization? What were her accomplishments?

If you have hit a brick wall in the quest to find information about your female ancestors, consider registering for our Research: Grandmothers, Mothers & Daughters – Tracing Women course, which is just one of the online genealogy courses from The National Institute for Genealogical Studies.

 

This course is designed to guide you through the process of researching your family’s history by covering strategies and key sources you will need to access in order to overcome common challenges when tracing female ancestors. It will show you how to document “her” story and reveal the often-hidden aspects of their lives.

The Research: Grandmothers, Mothers & Daughters – Tracing Women course draws our attention to the material covered in this course. Check out course highlights in the following blog posts:

Part 1: Researching HER Story
Part 2: What’s in a Name?
Part 3: Digging Deeper into HER Story
Part 4: Timelines for the Ladies in our Tree

Check the Course Calendar schedule below to find the next start date and register today!
