Lots of great Virtual Meetings coming up in the month of June. We have four sessions scheduled for this weekend (see details below). Hope you can join us! Come with your course and/or research questions.
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 June.
