Happy DNA Day!

April 25th has been named as DNA DAY under such names as: National DNA Day, International DNA Day, or World DNA Day. It commemorates the discovery of DNA’s double helix structure in 1953 and the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003. DNA is currently a very popular topic. Many have taken DNA tests from various companies. Now what? How do we make sense of our results and analyze what that means for ourselves and our genealogy research? There are many resources available. First, make sure to read ALL information provided by your DNA-testing organization.

The BCG Genealogical Standards Manual is one resource that is strongly recommended to explore genealogy standards and guidelines when dealing with the DNA results we reveal.

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers two specific DNA packages, which include several courses relating to DNA and genetics available to be taken individually. If you are interested in increasing your understanding of DNA, or want to learn ways to analyze your data, or how to implement strategies to organize your matches, please check out the following course descriptions more closely. Registration fees and dates are available under the Register tab for each course.

Need More Courses – Package Discount

Our world sure has changed in just a couple of weeks! We all hope you and your families are all staying healthy during this challenging time.

We have been receiving a large number of emails and phone calls at The National Institute for Genealogical Studies regarding adding courses to the current student’s briefcase. Some emails are interesting, like this one received yesterday: ‘I need more courses or I’ll strangle my husband!’ Listening to the experts and staying home can be ‘stressful’!

If you have packages with remaining courses, or you have courses in the future course area, and you would like a course added to your current briefcase, please send us an email at: admin@genealogicalstudies.com letting us know which course you want added. NEED MORE COURSES? Until Tuesday, March 31st, we are making ALL PACKAGES available at a 10% discount. That could be a savings of up to $300! To receive your discount, use the code 27cv20 at the registration check-out. If you have any problems, call us at 1-800-580-0165 ext 1. We will be here all weekend.

Are your finances tight at the moment? No problem, call our office and we will set up a payment plan with NO interest and NO service fees.
Call: 1-800-580-0165 ext 1.

And naturally, if you are not well, or you are someone’s caregiver and need more time to complete a course already in your current course area, please also send an email letting us know which course requires an extension, and for how long. If you want us to re-start the course in a future month, that’s OK too. Just let us know which month you wish. Don’t worry, any assignments previously completed will move with the course.

Stay safe, stay healthy…
