Transcription Tuesday – RootsTech 2022

Everyone is talking about RootsTech this week! At The National Institute for Genealogical Studies, we are taking part in RootsTech 2022 as well. Visit our virtual booth in the Expo Hall and check out several conference specials we are offering. (See blog post with Discounts Codes here.) 

RootsTech has scheduled more than 1,500 virtual Sessions on 185 topics in over 30 languages. You don’t want to miss it. You are able to search through the list of sessions using several filters, and then you can add your selected choices to your Play List. This allows attendees to watch the recordings at a later time, if they missed the presentation when it was live. You can also search the list of featured Speakers

One of the foundational research skills to develop is Transcribing. Searching for Transcribing and Transcriptions generates a variety of results to explore. Two of those session speakers have connections to The National Institute for Genealogical Studies.

Linda Debe is one of our certificate students and she has completed our Lecturing Skills Including Preparation course as one of her electives. Her Presentation: Abstracts, Extracts, and Transcriptions, OH MY! will take place on Thursday, March 3rd at 1 pm (Gmt-5).

Shannon Combs-Bennett, MSc, QG, PLCGS is a graduate of our certificate program, and she is the host of our DNA & Genetic Genealogy Virtual Meetings. Her Bio is available here, along with information about the 10 sessions she will be presenting at RootsTech 2022. One of those sessions is also about Transcriptions. Her Presentation: How to Transcribe the Past will take place on Thursday, March 3rd at 1 pm (Gmt-5).

As you may have noticed, BOTH of these sessions will be presented at the same time. This would create a dilemma, if you were attending RootsTech in person. However, both sessions can be added to your Playlist, and you will be able to watch at your leisure, with the added benefit of rewinding and re-watching.  

Building your transcription skills takes hand-on practice, but you must also take the time to learn from others. We hope you will take full advantage of the FREE sessions provided at RootsTech 2022. Perhaps you will find a new record set that you were not aware of, providing even more opportunities to practice your transcription skills. 

If there is a course of interest about transcriptions that we have highlighted, you may want to use the 50% off any ONE course discount – valid until Monday, March 7th. Use CODE: 2022c50 at the checkout.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
As researchers, we have found that there are many skills we need to employ in order to achieve success in our future research projects. Transcription Tuesday will share guidelines and practical suggestions to help our readers to develop the skills for making effective transcriptions, abstracts, and extractions.

These three core courses demonstrate Transcription principles. They are offered monthly, beginning on the first Monday of every month: Register today!
