A Sneak Peek

Take a sneak peek and be among the first to visit our brand-new Int’l Institute of Genealogical Studies YouTube ChannelBe sure to SUBSCRIBE to see more videos as they are added. 

Did you notice the name change? This was announced in the Student Orientation Fall sessions, along with some more exciting upcoming changes. The National Institute was founded in Canada, but we have students from around the world. With our new head office in Montana, the name highlights the fact that we cover across the border of both Canada and the United States. But this does not reflect our international students, so the name will be transitioning to the International Institute for Genealogical Studies. Our YouTube channel is the first to reflect our new name. Watch for more exciting news coming!

Our first uploaded video was our Back to School Orientation Fall 2022 recording of the evening session on August 30th. We hope it will help students who are a little overwhelmed as they begin their online education experience with The Institute. We have also added the last two Student Lounge presentations: Related Faces with Tina LaFreniere (July 2022) and MyHeritage DNA with Daniel Horowitz (August 2022). We will be adding more videos, so subscribe and check back frequently. 

September is a great month to reassess and pursue your genealogical education goals. Not sure where to start? We invite you to check out our list of courses, and the packages that we offer to enhance your genealogy skills. Are you considering a genealogy career? Our certificate programs will prepare you to launch into your genealogy business.

Need help to set up an education plan? Let us know how we can help you to successfully continue your genealogy education through our online courses. Your success is our goal!

Course Date Changes

We hear you! Announcement for Course Date Changes 

Planning for 2023, and being aware of the difficulty opening and closing dates of courses can cause when they open and/or close on a holiday or holiday weekend, we are listening to our student feedback. Thank you for letting us know that we could improve your student experience by avoiding course start and end dates on a holiday or holiday weekend. 

Though we cannot avoid every single special day of the year for every single country (there just aren’t enough days in the year!), we are able to adjust for most of them. If you have noticed a date change on the first day or last day of your course, it is because we listened to you, our students, and moved the dates to lessen your stress.

We hope this raises your enjoyment of taking courses at the National Institute for Genealogical Studies AND we are hopeful it will lower your stress in completing your exams and courses into the future. We love our student genealogists!

Notice for Delays

On Saturday, May 21, 2022, a Derecho storm system passed through Eastern Ontario and into Western Quebec. This storm left a path of destruction with a loss of hydro, internet and cell service for many residents. Besides the property damage, there was also loss of life. Our thoughts and prayers are with these families through this difficult time. 

A Message from our Director: 
Due to the emergent situation from the storms on May 21st, our Canadian office is without power. All staff are safe. Shipping within Canada may be delayed until electricity is recovered and travel is safely restored. 

We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for understanding.
