Transcription Tuesday Index

As researchers, there are many skills we need to employ in order to achieve success in our research projects. One of the foundational research skills to develop at the International Institute of Genealogical Studies is Transcribing. All family history researchers, no matter what their level of expertise, should strive to acquire this core skill. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

In honor of National Handwriting Day, we are reposting the links to our 2021 Transcription Tuesday Series blog posts. These were created to share guidelines and practical suggestions to help our readers to develop the necessary skills for making effective transcriptions. 

The following is an INDEX of the blog posts:

We offer three core courses which examine and demonstrate key Transcription principles and examples. These courses are offered at the beginning of every month:

Methodology-Part 2: Organizing and Skill-Building (Basic Level) 
Skills: Transcribing, Abstracting & Extracting (Basic Level)
Palaeography: Reading & Understanding Historical Documents (Advanced)

Learning to master Transcription, Abstraction and Extraction skills will prove to be invaluable to your research, especially for in-depth analysis. It is recommended to transcribe every document you obtain. A line-by-line review will reveal clues often missed when we only skim a document for key information. It is an irreplaceable habit to develop.

Student Presentation: Beyond the Birth, Death, and Marriage Dates

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies / International Institute of Genealogical Studies has a student presentation coming up. We hope you can join us to show support to your fellow student. 

Our course, Lecturing Skills Including Preparation, teaches the skills needed to present genealogical-related lectures. It is a “hands-on” course where the student presents a lecture via our VIRTUAL LEARNING ROOM. We invite you to participate and hear your fellow student. This is a 30-minute lecture, followed by a 10-minute Question & Answer period and a short poll to provide the student with feedback on their skills. Please come and support your fellow students! 

This is an excellent learning experience for all involved – the student presenter and the audience! We all can learn new and interesting tidbits, even from topics that are not in our area of research.
NOTE: This session is FREE and you do not have to be a current or past student to attend.
