Research Using Internet Tools

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers comprehensive online education to enhance your genealogical knowledge and provide skill building research techniques. Whether you are just starting your family research, or you are interested in pursuing one of our Certificates in Genealogical Studies programs, you will need to learn the basics of navigating the Internet environment. These courses go beyond genealogical methodology or basic computer skills as they lay the foundation for successful online research. They are a must for every family historian.
Three Basic Courses

Google for the Wise Genealogist 
This course explores Google programs and how they can be used to research family history. Google is the best non-genealogy, genealogy website there is!

Social Media Tools for Genealogists 
By using social media tools, you can connect with researchers worldwide, find distant relations, curate content, and share your research. This course provides you with just some of the tools you will need to help you take advantage of various websites and demonstrates how social media is all about sharing, education, mobility and yes, networking.

Connecting Family Online & Virtually
Computers and the Internet have revolutionized the way families communicate. This course highlights specific ways to use your computer and the Internet to build and strengthen family ties while conducting your family research. By exploring various topics, participants will discover ways to find long lost cousins and stay in touch with distant relatives.

Student Lounge Open Again This Week

We are opening our National Institute for Genealogical Studies Student Lounge again this week and again we will be having a discussion each day the Student Lounge is open … please see below for the topics, descriptions, and dates/times.

During your time spent in the Student Lounge, we ask that you PLEASE KEEP THE DISCUSSION ABOUT GENEALOGY AND THE ONLINE COURSES ONLY. We are all dealing with enough stress. This is a time to enjoy your family history, courses, and learn genealogy from others.

Gena Philibert-Ortega and/or Sue de Groot will be monitoring the Student Lounge during the scheduled hours and will be inactive as they still have work to do. As time permits in the workday, Gena or Sue may pop into the Virtual Learning Room to answer questions or even give a small presentation.
