Social Media for the Wise Genealogist

Many thanks to Geniaus for alerting us to this free course run by the National Institute of Genealogical Studies. I have now enrolled in Social Media for the Wise Genealogist beginning March 15, 2011.

The course covers social media tools vital to today’s genealogical research including social networking sites, RSS, bookmarking, and more. This course utilizes Drew Smith’s book Social Networking for Genealogists.

The internet is changing rapidly, social media is the mode of communication commonly used to connect genealogy researchers around the world.

By completing this course the student should become “Social Media Genealogy Wise”! 


  1. I have enrolled for March too - but haven't been told the starting date. Maybe we'll be in class together.

  2. I am concerned that they are using a book published two years ago as their text. Wonder if GenealogyWise is mentioned in the book?
