July Virtual Meetings

We have the last of our July Virtual Meetings scheduled on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. We hope you will join us for a session, if it is applicable to your studies and/or research. Details are outlined below.

Students and researchers can enhance their genealogy learning experience by joining a virtual meeting regarding their studies and asking questions. Even if you don’t have questions, you are welcome to just listen, linger and learn! We don’t mind in the least.

Remember, these Virtual Meetings are NOT mandatory for our students. They are a fun and interactive way to ask questions about the courses and/or research at a relevant session.

***IMPORTANT*** New Adobe Connect information and instructions are available on our website. If you are experiencing any issues when attending a virtual meeting, please obtain the INSTRUCTIONS document in PDF format near the top right of our Virtual Learning Room page on our website.
