Black Friday is almost here! Every year, many shoppers anxiously wait for the day after the American Thanksgiving to discover what deals will be included in the Black Friday sales. Some sales will be just on that day, while others will extend throughout the weekend. Exclusive electronic and tech deals may be offered on the following Monday. Cyber Monday often offers its own exclusive deals. In recent years, many organizations are also offering Early Black Friday sales or Pre-Black Friday deals. Start watching for discounts and be sure to take note of the expiry dates. For many, Black Friday shopping has become a holiday tradition.

So, what does this have to do with genealogy? Black Friday sales are being offered by many genealogy and family history organizations right now. Be sure to check your favourite websites and their social media posts for exclusive offers. These discounts are frequently the lowest prices to be offered for the year. From DNA testing kits to memberships and subscriptions to software to various genealogy-related products, this is a great time to take advantage of Black Friday savings. 

What are your genealogical goals for 2023? Thinking about them now, while the sales and discounts are on, will give you the opportunity to save on your 2033 budget. Which memberships or subscriptions will you need? Do you know the supplies needed for your educational goals? Do you need to upgrade your technology equipment? Are you planning to do further DNA research that requires more DNA testing? Watch for your best economic opportunities. There will be a flurry of sales. Have your wish list ready! 

Have you shared your genealogy wish list with your holiday shoppers? Let your family and friends know about the sale items of interest to you and help them contribute to your genealogy research projects. Remember, Black Friday is November 25th. Don’t miss out on the savings!

Related Faces Featured in July Student Lounge

At The National Institute for Genealogical Studies, we enhance the online learning experience for our students by promoting #StudentLife opportunities. Every month, there is a Student Lounge virtual meeting scheduled for our students. Since we have migrated our meetings to the Zoom platform, we are now planning to offer special presentation sessions, beginning with our July Student Lounge. Watch for our next scheduled Student Lounge Virtual Meetings in our VIRTUAL LEARNING ROOM.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

RELATED FACES

In July, we were pleased to offer a bonus to our regular Student Lounge session. We had a special presentation from guest speaker: Tina LaFreniere of Related Faces. Tina developed Related Faces to help identify people in antique photos. She shared this exciting new resource for identifying those unlabeled photos in our inherited family collections by pairing recognizable facial features of family members, even if they are different ages. This will definitely advance our family history storytelling by enabling us to visually display our past extended family members to the current generation who never knew them.

You can begin with a 14-Day FREE Trial to set up your profiles for each family member and their photos. Privacy is ensured for living people. Please follow Copyright restrictions, which means you should only use photos that you have, or have permission to use. Then upload your photos and start pairing. Related Faces will identify the same or similar faces in photos and allows you to organize your photos on your home page. You will be able to connect to other users to collaborate, and perhaps discover new family connections. Mobile uploads allow you to scan and add photos right from your mobile device. It also has a feature to compare your photos to the United States Library of Congress’ photo collection.

As a Thank You to The National Institute for Genealogical StudiesRelated Faces is offering a 25% Discount for a limited time to our students, and has graciously extended the invitation to our followers as well. 

Coupon Code: RFELWQPJ66. 
Please Note: This coupon will expire on 15 August 2022. 

We encourage our followers to take advantage of the 14-Day FREE Trial at Related Faces and explore what this website has to offer. You may solve a long-time family photo mystery, or even topple a brick wall by identifying that face beside your ancestor. 

NOTE: You can view a recording of the presentation that was given in this session here.

Transcription Tuesday – RootsTech 2022

Everyone is talking about RootsTech this week! At The National Institute for Genealogical Studies, we are taking part in RootsTech 2022 as well. Visit our virtual booth in the Expo Hall and check out several conference specials we are offering. (See blog post with Discounts Codes here.) 

RootsTech has scheduled more than 1,500 virtual Sessions on 185 topics in over 30 languages. You don’t want to miss it. You are able to search through the list of sessions using several filters, and then you can add your selected choices to your Play List. This allows attendees to watch the recordings at a later time, if they missed the presentation when it was live. You can also search the list of featured Speakers

One of the foundational research skills to develop is Transcribing. Searching for Transcribing and Transcriptions generates a variety of results to explore. Two of those session speakers have connections to The National Institute for Genealogical Studies.

Linda Debe is one of our certificate students and she has completed our Lecturing Skills Including Preparation course as one of her electives. Her Presentation: Abstracts, Extracts, and Transcriptions, OH MY! will take place on Thursday, March 3rd at 1 pm (Gmt-5).

Shannon Combs-Bennett, MSc, QG, PLCGS is a graduate of our certificate program, and she is the host of our DNA & Genetic Genealogy Virtual Meetings. Her Bio is available here, along with information about the 10 sessions she will be presenting at RootsTech 2022. One of those sessions is also about Transcriptions. Her Presentation: How to Transcribe the Past will take place on Thursday, March 3rd at 1 pm (Gmt-5).

As you may have noticed, BOTH of these sessions will be presented at the same time. This would create a dilemma, if you were attending RootsTech in person. However, both sessions can be added to your Playlist, and you will be able to watch at your leisure, with the added benefit of rewinding and re-watching.  

Building your transcription skills takes hand-on practice, but you must also take the time to learn from others. We hope you will take full advantage of the FREE sessions provided at RootsTech 2022. Perhaps you will find a new record set that you were not aware of, providing even more opportunities to practice your transcription skills. 

If there is a course of interest about transcriptions that we have highlighted, you may want to use the 50% off any ONE course discount – valid until Monday, March 7th. Use CODE: 2022c50 at the checkout.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
As researchers, we have found that there are many skills we need to employ in order to achieve success in our future research projects. Transcription Tuesday will share guidelines and practical suggestions to help our readers to develop the skills for making effective transcriptions, abstracts, and extractions.

These three core courses demonstrate Transcription principles. They are offered monthly, beginning on the first Monday of every month: Register today!

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. A common theme woven through the sessions is Sharing our family’s stories and Preserving the documents that help us to tell those stories. Search the sessions for your topics of interest. 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.
