Drawing for a Free Course at the Virtual Institute of Genealogy

I am excited to share the press release from the Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research. In honor of Memorial Day they are having a drawing for a free course, and everyone that registers this weekend will be entered in the drawing. There are some excellent courses that have just opened up for registration (Disclosure: I will be teaching one of the courses).

Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research Announces Upcoming Courses and Offers Memorial Day Drawing for Free Course  

RALEIGH, North Carolina, 22 May 2015
Registration is currently open for six upcoming courses offered by the Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research.

“We are very excited about these new courses, covering genetic genealogy; English, German and Native American research; and U.S. federal land and Revolutionary War records,” said co-administrator Michael Hait, CG. “The response to our courses has been outstanding! The Virtual Institute is an excellent option for in-depth genealogical education, especially for those with limited travel options.”

In celebration of Memorial Day, the Virtual Institute is also offering a drawing for everyone who registers for a course between Friday, 22 May 2015 and Monday, 25 May 2015 at midnight (U.S. Eastern).
