Registration will be closing this Friday, 11 November 2016, for the next course being offered by the Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research: “Harness the Power of the Web” with D. Joshua Taylor, MA, MLS.
The Internet has dramatically changed the way genealogists conduct their research. From hidden treasures found on the websites of local libraries to massive online databases gathered by subscription websites like Ancestry, there seems to always be something new to discover online.
This course shares techniques and tools to enable you to become an expert at online research. A specific focus is placed about keyword development for searching online databases, locating digital collections, and using common subscription websites effectively.
