The National Institute for Genealogical Studies was established to assist all genealogists---from family historians to practising professionals---by providing studies in a variety of genealogical topics. Education provides an important role in raising levels of personal and visible growth and in the certification or accreditation of genealogists.

With this in mind, a group of professional genealogists came together to create courses and programs conforming to recognized genealogical standards, with several objectives:

  1. To assist the family historian research and record information regarding their ancestors in a responsible and professional manner.
  2. To help the serious amateur genealogist gain the skills required to apply for certification or accreditation.
  3. To help the professional genealogist develop a part-time or full-time career in our chosen field.
