National Institute for Genealogical Studies Announces New Certificate Program in Eastern European Records
The National Institute for Genealogical Studies
The Eastern European Records Certificate features courses in researching various records and repositories in Eastern Europe.
Course author and genealogy professional Lisa Alzo, MFA says of researching Eastern European ancestors, “A vast number of immigrants came to the United States and Canada from various areas in Central and Eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Unfortunately, in the past, those with Eastern European roots have been reticent to begin research on their immigrant ancestors due to perceived barriers of language, geography, and difficulty with accessing and understanding the records. With the popularity of DNA testing, more people are discovering they have Eastern European ancestry and have a desire to know more. As more records become accessible with each passing year, it has never been easier to consolidate known facts with newly discovered information.”
There is a discount on this new course being offered during RootsTech, and of course OGS members receive a 10% discount on courses and packages at any time.
The certificate in Eastern European Records will provide in-depth instruction for genealogists with roots in many countries where research was difficult, if not impossible, just a decade ago.
“We are excited to announce the creation of this new certificate program focusing on Eastern Europe. Researchers will find these courses to be an important addition to expanding their knowledge about the region and records,” remarked National Institute’s Managing Director Louise St Denis.
