This February, two of the Virtual Institute’s most popular instructors will be offering new courses.
First, to be held on February 10 and 17, Blaine T. Bettinger will return to present “The Essential Copyright Guide for Genealogists.” Many know Blaine from his blog The Genetic Genealogist and several DNA-related courses, but did you also know that he works as an intellectual property attorney? Issues surrounding copyright are central to much of a genealogist’s work: how can we use the work of others and how can others use our work? Blaine will tackle these questions and many others in his course.

Next, to be held on February 24 and March 3, Craig Roberts Scott will teach “Pensions: Did You Stop Too Soon?” Craig has taught several U.S. military courses for the Virtual Institute over they years. This time around, he will focus on U.S. military pensions, beginning with pension laws and pension applications, and examining the other records created such as pension ledgers and payment vouchers.
