Special Announcement

A Special Announcement from The National Institute for Genealogical Studies:

In December, we announced that our course fees hadn’t been adjusted since December 2007! Yes, you read that correctly, 14 years ago! Nearly two years ago, in March 2020, we were in the process of again starting the process and then… Covid hit. 

We did a very small raise in regular course fees in January but haven’t been able to finish the updates on the packages. The time has come for us to finish updating the course package fees. 

Tip: If you’d like to take advantage of the current prices, please place your order prior to May 15, 2022. You’ll save up to 20% before the course package and certification programs increase. Once the change occurs, the prices will be set.

If you have any questions, or you would like to know the most economical way of completing your program, please contact us:

  1. Send an email: admin@genealogicalstudies.com
  2. Call: 1-800-580-0165 ext 1

We are here to help you reach your genealogical goals…

DNA Historical Studies Course Released

The wait is finally over! The National Institute for Genealogical Studies is pleased to announce the release of our newest online course AND the final compulsory course for our DNA and Genetic Genealogy Certificate. We have been anticipating the launch of DNA: Historical Studies as the 7th addition to our DNA courses. We promise that you will not be disappointed. 

OUR NEWEST ADVANCED DNA COURSE

Genetic genealogy is a topic of immense interest to family history researchers looking to find connections to ancestors when traditional research has failed to provide results. Utilizing both DNA testing and traditional research methods can mean the difference between an elusive ancestor and a documented ancestor. 

But DNA testing is not just for genealogists interested in family relationships and ethnicity estimates. DNA is well-known for solving cold cases for law enforcement. It has also been used to solve some of history’s biggest mysteries such as in the claims of historical identities. Cases explored in the course include Anna Anderson, the Titanic Baby, Jesse James, and the Golden State Killer. 

What can these seemingly non-genealogical cases teach us? Learning more about DNA as it relates to genealogical cases and non-genealogical cases helps to expand and enhance our DNA knowledge and provides insights as we solve research problems. Students are encouraged to explore these cases presented in this course further by seeking out scientific journals and popular media articles. 

Visit the DNA: Historical Studies page for more details. It is sure to inspire you to seek out current DNA projects, especially for events or mysteries related to your research projects. This course is scheduled to begin on the first Monday of every month. It is definitely a course to be added to your DNA Research education. Register today!

Last Gift for 2021

Tis the season for even more gifts as the surprizes keep coming!

Did you take advantage of our 20% Discount Promotion? Or did the Deadline sneak past as you were busy preparing for the holidays? We have good news for you! We have just received a new message from Louise for a Bonus Extension.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  
We need your help! Since last Thursday, I’ve been at the keyboard, and on the phone talking with students, and letting them know what they need, often to finish one or two, and sometimes three and four certificate programs. Lots of notes were created to process your registrations. 

Please check your Student Briefcase. Make sure that everything you wanted is indicated on your list. If not, please give me (Louise) a call at 1-800-580-0165 ext 1.

We decided to leave the 20% DISCOUNT CODE available for the next few days to make sure everyone, who wants registrations of courses or packages before the fees increase, has what they want or need. The Code has now expired.

The registration fee increases will start appearing next week – first with the individual courses, and then by the end of the week, for the packages.

Please read the original announcement here.

If you have any questions, there are multiple ways to contact us. Call 1-800-580-0165 ext 1, leave a message on the voice mail, click on the message button in the bottom right side on our website, or send an email.

Visit our website at https://www.genealogicalstudies.com/.

Don’t delay; it will cost you about 35% more next week……

We hope everyone has a safe and fun-filled holiday…

The Waiting is Finally Over

The hourglass has finally run its course leading up to our Second Announcement. Thank you for your patience. No more suspense, the details are now released. 

A Special Announcement from The National Institute for Genealogical Studies:

20% DISCOUNT – words you like to hear… 
REGISTRATION FEE INCREASE… words I am sure you don’t want to hear. 

December 2007 was the last time the registration fees were adjusted. Yes, you read that correctly, 14 years ago! Remember 2008? That’s when the economy was hit hard. We froze the fees in 2008, and although we have tried numerous times since to raise the fees, the timing simply was not right. Nearly two years ago, in March 2020, we were in the process of again starting the process and then… Covid hit. People were losing their jobs; again, we pulled back and left the fees where they were. 

The time has come; it must be done.

BUT it is not all bad news… 
We know that for some, this will be more difficult than for others. Here are some OPTIONS:

  1. 20% DISCOUNT on ALL registrations (includes individual courses and packages). Use CODE at checkout. (We had originally planned for a 10% discount, but it’s the time of the year to be jolly!) Note: CODE has now expired.
    Registrations must be received by midnight Eastern Time on Monday, December 20th.
  2. Register Packages to complete your program. Save substantially: the more courses in the package, the bigger the savings. (Not sure what you need to finish your program? Contact us.)
  3. Money is a little tight because of Christmas? Ask us to defer your payment.
  4. PAYMENT PLAN: We do not charge interest nor service fees, and we can spread the payments over several months. We know Christmas is just around the corner; if it helps, we can start your payments in January 2022.

If you have any questions, or you would like to know the most economical way of completing your program, please contact me:

  1. On our site: click on the button at the bottom of each page, leave us a message, we will contact you. Make sure to include your name, email address, and phone number if you would like us to call you.
  2. Send an email: admin@genealogicalstudies.com
  3. Call: 1-800-580-0165 ext 1

We are here to help you reach your genealogical goals…
