ARLINGTON, VA, OCTOBER 28, 2008: The National Genealogical Society, headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, announces a new educational course offering, Working With Deeds. This latest of NGS’s online courses teaches a researcher to recognize and understand various types of deeds and to analyze the information found in them. These skills help family historians sort out the mysteries of ancestral relationships and solve difficult brick-wall problems.
The NGS Special Topics Series courses, available as downloadable PDF files, are designed for those who want to complete a short course on a specific topic and put the resultant knowledge to work right away. The NGS Home Study Course, available on CD-ROM, is a comprehensive study course that takes longer to complete but provides an overall grounding in genealogical research.
NGS online courses offer the convenience of completing a genealogy study course at your own pace. They are reasonably priced, and a discount is offered to NGS members.
