I told you a while back that I would be taking the German courses that the National Institute for Genealogical Studies (NIGS) offers. Even though I was born in Germany and I speak German I am not that familiar with doing in depth German research and that is why I am taking these specialized courses. I am also blogging about the German courses on the NIGS Blog. I wanted to give you a bit of an update of where I am at in the program.
I have completed two courses, Introduction to German Research for North Americans and Locating Places in Germany. I have to say that I am amazed with how much information they pack in. The texts for the courses are excellent. I can honestly say that I have already learned a lot.
The course I am in right now is German – The Language. The next course after that will be Church Records. That will conclude all of the basic level courses and then I will be on to the intermediate level.
