American Colonial Courses

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers online genealogical education for family history enthusiasts, genealogists and historians. Our courses are offered in Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced levels. You can register for courses individually, or receive a discount by choosing from a variety of packages. These are bundled either by specific theme or can be customized to your own interests. Check out our full list of Packages.

Courses are usually scheduled to begin on the first Monday of the month, however, not all courses are available monthly. Be sure to check under the Register tab in the course description for the dates when the courses of your choice are scheduled to open again. You can check our current Course Calendar here to see which courses are scheduled to begin next.

In our list of online courses, there are four courses covering the colonial period of the Eastern United States, focusing on the original Thirteen Colonies. These are valuable resources for anyone researching in this region and timeframe. 

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 consecutive generation, is a great way to recognize the 400+ years since their arrival in North America.
Course Description for Research: Mayflower Ancestors 

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. Experience with transcribing Colonial Handwriting will be a benefit. 
Course Description for Research: US Colonial New England Ancestors

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 eventually 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 as they navigated through this turbulent time in their lives. This was also a time of major migrations and relocations. 

Fortunately, there have been numerous records created and preserved during the colonial period. Thankfully, various organizations have worked to digitize as many of the surviving records as possible. We just need to know how to access them to document our family’s stories and discover the part they played in these historical events.

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. This course will also discuss the membership and lineage requirements of the United Empire Loyalists Association of Canada (UELAC.org). Records include: military service, petitions, claims, land, and other records that will assist with documenting your UEL ancestor. The British North American colonies where the Loyalists went for resettlement include Upper Canada (Ontario)—where the original U.E. (Unity of Empire) tradition really took hold—the Maritime provinces, and Lower Canada (Quebec).
Course Description for Research: United Empire Loyalist Ancestors 

US: Military Records (includes Revolutionary War)
This course includes records of conflicts in the United States and colonial America from the early colonial wars of the seventeenth century to the Revolutionary War, as well as the records of later conflicts to WW2. What is required for Military and Lineage Societies may be of particular interest as there is discussion of the various types of records created by military service, such as service records, muster rolls, pension records, and draft registration. Note: This is an advanced course.
Course Description for US: Military Records

American Colonial Ancestors
Registration for these four courses could be submitted at a discount by choosing: 
Course Package – 4 Courses 
Have you already taken one or more of these courses? No problem! Just choose any four courses of your choice to take advantage of the bundled package discount.  

***NEW*** Just announced in June! We have added another Virtual Meeting to our monthly chats. The US Colonial & Mayflower Records Virtual Meeting will be hosted by Shannon Combs – Bennett, MSc, QG, PLCGS beginning in July.

Genealogy in a Package

Father’s Day is almost here! Some packages may already be arriving at your door or from the mall; while others are safely hidden away until it’s time to present them to Dad on his special day. We all love to receive packages. However, some package contents are better than others. Ties and joke T-shirts are fun (usually), and a gift card is fun to spend, but how much better if your package was genealogy-related? 

Father’s Day is a great time to gather with family members and reminisce about childhood memories and great vacations. If you are gathering with siblings, aunts and uncles, or grandparents, ask questions about your family history and watch them share their memories to the next generation. 

Do you have family members who are asking you what is on your Wish List? Have you been thinking about creating your genealogy wish list? How are you doing with your research goals? It may be that you have dropped several hints, but what will you receive? If they need some suggestions, we have a solution! The National Institute for Genealogical Studies can make sure your package has just the right online courses for your 2022 genealogy education plan.

You can choose any of our 225+ courses individually, or one of our specific Course Packages listed below, but did you know that you can also create your own unique package? Choose 4, 7, 8, 10 or 13 courses and make your package with the exact courses needed for your own distinctive research project. See details for all Course Packages here.
