Join Us For Digitizing Your Genealogy Research

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies course, Lecturing Skills Including Preparation, teaches the skills needed to present genealogical-related lectures. It is a “hands on” course where the student presents a lecture via our Virtual Learning Room. We invite you to participate and hear your fellow student. This is a 30-minute lecture, followed by a 10-minute Question & Answer period and a short poll to provide the student with feedback on her skills. Please come and support your fellow students!

This is an excellent learning experience for all involved–the student presenter and the audience! We all can learn new and interesting tidbits, even from topics that are not in our area of research.

Join us on November 20, 2018 at 4:00pm EST for Digitizing Your Genealogy Research.

Many genealogists are turning to digitization to preserve and share their research. Learn reasons for digitizing, how to implement a digitization project and what to do when digitization is complete.

Rebecca Novy. Used with permission.

Presenter: Rebecca Novy is a genealogy professional specializing in helping others achieve their genealogy goals through research, teaching classes, coaching, and participating in local transcription projects.

This presentation will be held in the Virtual Meeting room.

Student Presentation: Telling your Ancestor’s Story Using US Civil War Records

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies course, Lecturing Skills Including Preparation, teaches the skills needed to present genealogical-related lectures. It is a “hands on” course where the student presents a lecture via our Virtual Learning Room. We invite you to participate and hear your fellow student. This is a 30-minute lecture, followed by a 10-minute Question & Answer period and a short poll to provide the student with feedback on their skills. Please come and support your fellow student!

This is an excellent learning experience for all involved–the student presenter and the audience! We all can learn new and interesting tidbits, even from topics that are not in our area of research.
