Educational Opportunities

Due to safety precautions during the Covid-19 pandemic, all training opportunities will be held virtually through Zoom. BGS members should refer to the latest edition of the Welcome Notes newsletter for details on upcoming classes, workshops, and SIGs.
For 2021, we are offering several courses, workshops, seminars, and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to support members’ interests in specific genealogical topics. We will also have a few classes, workshops, and seminars, which will be open to the public. Please feel free to send an email to the Instructor, Leader, or Facilitator if you need more information about a specific educational event.
