The National Institute for Genealogical Studies - LEADERS IN ONLINE GENEALOGY EDUCATION

Research A-Z ~ United States

For the month of April, we have highlighted some of the 225+ genealogy and research courses offered at The National Institute for Genealogical Studies. There are a variety of themes and topics to choose from. Hopefully, we will feature some courses that you were not aware of and pique your interest to explore further.


Do you have American research? Our American Records courses cover a vast number of topics. There are compulsory US courses required for the American Certificate, plus plenty of additional American courses to fulfill the elective requirements. Additional courses could be used to explore research projects with a US-focus. Any of these listed courses can be taken on their own or bundled in a package of courses.

There is also the option to combine American compulsory courses with the compulsory courses from another certificate to complete two certificates at once.
