52 Weeks to Better Genealogy - Week 10

Week 10: ProGen Study Group
 “The ProGen Study Groups are organized to encourage professional and aspiring genealogists to put into practice the principles found in Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers and Librarians, edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills. This program employs an innovative method of collaborative learning focused on developing genealogical research skills and business practices." -PGSG

Ordered my book from Amazon, can't wait until it arrives, and can't wait until the next study group starts, hopefully first of May.

"Each month group members study one or two chapters of Professional Genealogy and complete a practical assignment relating to the material.”  Angela Packer McGhie is the administrator, and organizes the groups. 

Yet another way to brush up on my skills, before jumping into a certification program.  One of the particularly interesting  things, is that it uses one of the textbooks required for the Boston University Genealogy Certification Program.  (More about that in the next post)
