NGS has Free Genealogy Resources

The National Genealogical Society (NGS) has free genealogy resources that can be accessed through their website. One of their main goals is to educate the public about family history research. Their free genealogy resources section includes genealogy charts, templates, and tutorials.

NGS has organized helpful tips, articles, and resources to make them accessible for every level of family researcher. Choose from: Getting Started, Going to the Next Level, or working at Building Advanced Skills. Those who are not NGS members are offered a free sampling of beneficial articles from NGS Magazine, NGS Quarterly, and NGS Monthly.

Here is a list of topics NGS is offering for free:

NGS offers personalized learning choices because they know that everyone learns differently. They offer resources in several formats including reading and workbooks, audio and video recordings, one-on-one consultations on a NGS research trip, or through annual conferences.

It is wonderful that NGS offers those who are new to genealogy some helpful information about how to get started. It makes things much less intimidating for those who want to learn about their family but do not know where to begin.

The National Genealogical Society (NGS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1903, is the premier national society for everyone from the beginner to the most advanced family historian. Their conferences, publications, educational courses, and other offerings present continued learning opportunities.
