Follow Friday – Genealogy Education
Many of us start our genealogical journeys through self-education. Then we reach a point where something else is needed. We need to attend a local genealogy society’s general meeting or workshop. Perhaps we investigate research library workshop offerings. We may go even bigger into the state and national offerings like state conferences, National Archives workshops, or national genealogy society conferences.
Angela Packer McGhie writes a blog called Adventures in Genealogy Education. Angela presents information about workshops, conferences, study groups, webinars, and new books related to genealogy education. Check out her blog and what is available if you are interested in taking that next step.
Harold Henderson writes a blog called Midwestern Microhistory: A Genealogy Blog. He recently wrote an article about Genealogy on the Cheap that is worth a read.
Considering going for genealogical certification? The Board for Certification of Genealogists just launched a blog to help those going through the process and those considering that option.
