“Certification: Not Just for Over-achievers”


Genealogy and Skiing – how do they parallel each other? Pamela Boyer Sayre, CG, CGL, answers this in her BCG luncheon talk at FGS 2012 in Birmingham, Alabama, “Certification: Not Just for Over-achievers.” This humorous talk explores the parallels between skiing and all levels of genealogists.

Reasons are as varied as each individual but all are welcome to apply.
