Press release from NIGS - New Australian Genealogy Courses

I have been contacted by Elizabeth Lapointe from the Institute who has asked me to post this item of interest to Australians on my blog.  As someone who has been a participant in a course conducted by Kerry Farmer for the Institute I can commend  her work.

(Toronto January 22, 2011) Louise St. Denis, Managing Director of the National Institute for Genealogical Studies, has just announced the new Australian Records Certificate courses which are now available at <>. The Institute offers courses via distance education, using the Internet. This allows students to study at their own pace, at the time and place convenient for them.

Last November, Louise visited many cities in Australia and New Zealand as part of the ‘Unlock the Past’ History and Genealogy Roadshow. At that Roadshow, Louise announced the appointment of Kerry Farmer as Director, Australian Studies, with the company.

The first course to be offered is "Australia: Births, Deaths and Marriages", which will start on February 7, 2011. More courses covering the range of Australian records will become available as the year progresses.

For those undertaking another certificate program (for example, in English or Irish records), various elective courses will also be available, some covering a broad spectrum of Australian records but in less detail. Any of the courses can also be taken independently.

To read a detailed description about a specific course, please go to our website at <>, click on the menu item "COURSES", and click on "COURSES" again. Then click on "ALPHABETICAL LISTING" to make searching through over 60 courses being given in February a little easier!

To learn more about our instructors, please go to our site at <>, click on menu item "INSTITUTE", then click on "FACULTY", and click on the instructor's name.
If you need more information, please call us toll-free in North America at 1-800-580-0165, or send us a message at <>.

You can enroll in these or other courses by simply going to the Institute's website at <>, choosing the ones which interest you, and registering online.
