We have a great line up of Virtual Meetings for the month of October. See the details below. Hope you can join us!
Enhance your genealogy education and attend virtual meetings! Each month, The International 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 a small presentation.

Our special guest, Jennifer Roodzant of Descendant Genealogy, will present: Clustering DNA Matches with Gephi to Pinpoint Genetic Networks. Gephi is a graph and visualization platform that quickly and efficiently clusters shared matches into genetic networks. Say goodbye to the long days of sorting matches! You will leave with a toolkit for rapidly clustering matches in Gephi to identify the shared most recent common ancestors.
