It was two years later that an even more unique opportunity for students came when Internet courses were offered, a first of its kind. Louise St Denis, Managing Director of the National Institute reflects “We began the National Institute in 1997 to meet a need. To provide genealogy education that was affordable and could be done from home, allowing anyone who wanted to learn more about genealogical research that opportunity.”

According to Beverly Rice, Director of Curriculum Development, “We have many new courses that will begin in 2012 that will enhance what the Institute currently provides. I’m really excited about our new skill building course track that will help genealogists learn to solve complex research problems.” With over 200 courses and growing in 9 certificate programs, the National Institute has something that will interest all genealogists.

Students and instructors from the National Institute come from all over the world including the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England and Europe. The National Institute courses are helping these genealogists fulfill their personal and professional goals. Susan Michael, a National Institute alumni from North Carolina says, “ I am now a Board-certified genealogist. When I began working on my American Studies certificate that was my first step towards the goal of becoming a Certified Genealogist. I heartily recommend the Institute’s program as an excellent educational step towards professional-level genealogy.”
