Board for Certification of Genealogists Offers Free Webinars

The Board for Certification of Genealogists is offering 2 free webinars to help you become a better genealogist:

  • Monday, September 22 - 8 pm Eastern - Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, will discuss “Fine Wine in a New Bottle: Guidelines for Effective Research and Family Histories.” Updated, retitled, and reorganized, the genealogy standards first published in 2000 are now available in a new edition (see for more). ThIS webinar will describe the changes and what they mean for all family historians. Dr. Jones teaches at three genealogy institutes, co-edits the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, and is the author of Mastering Genealogical Proof.
  • Wednesday, October 15 - 8 pm Eastern - Judy G. Russell, J.D., CG, CGL, will explain “Kinship Determination: From Generation to Generation.” Requirement 7 of the BCG certification application asks for a Kinship Determination Project in which the applicant writes a three-generation narrative and explains how the relationships are documented. All genealogists do this regularly while placing relatives with their appropriate connections in the family tree. A familiar speaker at conferences across the country, Russell will coordinate the Advanced Methodology & Evidence Analysis course at the Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research in 2015.
