A Sneak Peek

Take a sneak peek and be among the first to visit our brand-new Int’l Institute of Genealogical Studies YouTube ChannelBe sure to SUBSCRIBE to see more videos as they are added. 

Did you notice the name change? This was announced in the Student Orientation Fall sessions, along with some more exciting upcoming changes. The National Institute was founded in Canada, but we have students from around the world. With our new head office in Montana, the name highlights the fact that we cover across the border of both Canada and the United States. But this does not reflect our international students, so the name will be transitioning to the International Institute for Genealogical Studies. Our YouTube channel is the first to reflect our new name. Watch for more exciting news coming!

Our first uploaded video was our Back to School Orientation Fall 2022 recording of the evening session on August 30th. We hope it will help students who are a little overwhelmed as they begin their online education experience with The Institute. We have also added the last two Student Lounge presentations: Related Faces with Tina LaFreniere (July 2022) and MyHeritage DNA with Daniel Horowitz (August 2022). We will be adding more videos, so subscribe and check back frequently. 

September is a great month to reassess and pursue your genealogical education goals. Not sure where to start? We invite you to check out our list of courses, and the packages that we offer to enhance your genealogy skills. Are you considering a genealogy career? Our certificate programs will prepare you to launch into your genealogy business.

Need help to set up an education plan? Let us know how we can help you to successfully continue your genealogy education through our online courses. Your success is our goal!

Student Lounge Virtual Meetings

At The National Institute for Genealogical Studies, we want to enhance the online learning experience for our students by promoting #StudentLife opportunities. Every month, there is a virtual meeting scheduled just for our students to connect and share. As genealogy is often a solitary endeavour, this is an opportunity to join others who are just as enthusiastic about family history and anxious to discuss research topics. Students can enquire about courses they are interested in registering for, or question students who have already completed them. Sharing their experiences with newer students is valuable! 

As an added bonus since mid-July, we have migrated our meetings to the Zoom platform, where students can now interact face-to-face and engage in verbal discussions rather than be limited to only typing in the chat box. They can now put a face to the names they have seen in the comments and discussions for their online assignments. #StudentLife is more than recognizing the names of their fellow students, it is getting to know them! After all, many of these students may become contacts in their future researcher networks. 

The schedule for all of our Virtual Meetings can be found on our website under VIRTUAL LEARNING ROOM. Watch for our next Student Lounge when the monthly Virtual Meetings schedule is posted here to our blog.

Watch for upcoming Special Presentations in our Students Lounge sessions.

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. Check out our schedule of FREE Virtual Meetings and add the meetings of interest to your calendar.
