Why Certify? Listen to What Rice, Fonkert, and Henderson Have to Say

Many people with decades of experience in genealogy waiver about applying for certification. The application process is daunting as we consider how many skills are required. Often we need to buff up a few skills, such as writing narratives or source citations.

Sitting on the fence about applying? There are as many reasons for applying as there are competent genealogists. We recently uploaded three more audio files on this topic. Go to http://www.bcgcertification.org/certification/why.html to listen to Jay Fonkert, CGSM, Beverly Rice, CGSM, and Harold Henderson, CGSM.
