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

Virtual Meetings for May 2022

Lots of great Virtual Meetings coming up in the month of May. Two sessions are scheduled for this weekend–the Student Lounge and Methodology (see details below). Whether you are new to Genealogical Studies or not, both of these sessions can be attended by all students no matter where your research takes you. 

Enhance your education and attend virtual meetings! Each month, The National Institute for Genealogical Studies hosts several virtual meetings, giving the students the ability to ask questions about the courses or research they are working on. Join a session applicable to your area of study or research to find answers. We can all learn from each other!

Virtual Meetings are a fun and interactive way to connect with an instructor and fellow students. They are NOT mandatory. If time permits, the host may provide a discussion or small presentation. 

Below are the scheduled sessions for the month of May.
