For Release: 28 December 2011

National Genealogical Society December Video Release

Arlington, VA, 28 December 2011: The National Genealogical Society has released a new video for the month of December about the National Genealogical Society Quarterly featuring Dr. Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FNGS.

This December issue of NGS online videos is the final segment from our first series of interviews based on the Paths to Your Past production. The series and the year 2011 fittingly end with one of the editors of the NGSQ speaking about the journal from his personal experience of having first read the journal, the learning opportunities its pages offer, and becoming the editor.

2012 will be the 100th anniversary year of the NGSQ, and a new video series will begin in tribute. Titled Voices of Genealogy, this series will be an archive of oral history of some of the most revered members of our community, preserving their presence for this and future generations of genealogists.

To see Tom Jones speaking about the NGSQ, visit any one of the following:


The video, produced by Kate Geis and Allen Moore, is available to the public and all NGS members.
