BCG offers free webinar on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, 8:00 p.m. (EDT)
The Internet, other technological advances, indexing projects, and DNA testing have revolutionized how genealogists conduct research. Have they also promoted counterproductive research habits?
The Board for Certification of Genealogists® (BCG) in conjunction with Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “The Advance of Research Habits over Recent Decades—and the Downside,” by Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG®, FASG, FNGS, FUGA, live and free to the public at 8:00 p.m. eastern daylight time, August 18, 2020. To accommodate those who might have schedule conflicts, the webinar may be accessed at no charge for one week after the broadcast on our partner website Legacy Family Tree Webinars (https://familytreewebinars.com).
Tom Jones is an award-winning genealogical researcher, writer, editor, and educator. He co-edited the National Genealogical Society Quarterly from 2002 to 2018, and he is the author of the textbooks Mastering Genealogical Proof and Mastering Genealogical Documentation. He has been certified by the Board for Certification of Genealogists since 1994. A professor emeritus at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., Tom teaches genealogical research methods at week-long genealogy institutes. He speaks at national, regional, and local seminars in the United States and internationally, and he writes frequently on genealogical evidence, proof, and problem solving.
