Tis the season for packages! We all love to receive packages and we open them with enthusiasm. However, some package contents are better than others. Have you been thinking about your genealogy wish list? Have you already drafted some 2023 research goals? You made your genealogy wish list and dropped several hints, but what did you receive? Slippers and socks are fun (usually), but how much better if your packages were genealogy-related? The International Institute of Genealogical Studies can make sure you have the best package with just the right courses for your 2023 Genealogy Education Plan. Turn your Christmas cash into valuable, skill-building opportunities with our online genealogy courses.
You can choose any of our 225+ courses individually, or register for one of our specific course packages, but did you know that you can also create your own unique package specifically geared to your 2023 education goals? Choose 4, 7, 8, 10 or 13 courses and make your customized package with the exact courses needed for your own distinctive research project.
