The International Institute of Genealogical Studies hosts several virtual meetings every month. We have a number scheduled for this week, as well as a Student Presentation and our Fall 2022 Graduation ceremony. Details are outlined below. Hope you can join us! Come with your course and/or research questions.
IMPORTANT: We are now using Zoom for all of our sessions. Attendees can verbally ask questions and use the text chat. The closed captioning feature is also available.
Students can enhance their learning experience by joining a virtual meeting regarding their studies and asking questions. However, you do not have to be a student in order to attend. Even if you don’t have any questions, you are welcome to just listen, lurk, and learn! We don’t mind.
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. We can all learn from each other!
Below are the scheduled sessions for November 14th to 19th.
