This committee works to support the following objectives:
- To provide genealogy education to ISGS members and the genealogical community as a whole.
- To educate the general public about genealogy in order to get people interested in discovering their family history while promoting the study of genealogy.
One of our biggest projects is the implementation of monthly webinars. Each month ISGS will offer an educational webinar with topics focusing on Illinois research, methodology, and beginning research. The webinars will be open to the public when they are presented live. After that, an archived copy of the webinar will be available to ISGS members at any time through our members-only website.
Other projects include:
- Educational articles on the ISGS Blog
- Youth Workshop (in conjunction with the Fall Conference)
- Youth Contest
- Workshop Toolkit
