BCG OFFERS FREE WEBINAR Tuesday, October 18 by Angela Packer McGhie, CG

“Educational Preparation for Certification: Many Paths to the Same Goal” presented by Angela Packer McGhie, CG

Developing the skills necessary to produce work that meets the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) takes time and effort. This presentation will highlight some of the educational options that are helpful in learning about each element of the GPS including thorough research, citations, evidence analysis, written conclusions; as well as each element of the application portfolio. The goal is to both understand and be able to meet genealogy standards. There are many educational paths to choose from, and both formal and independent study options will be discussed.

The Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) will present “Educational Preparation for Certification: Many Paths to the Same Goal” presented by Angela Packer McGhie, CG, free to the public at 8:00 p.m. EDT, 18 October 2016.

The recording of the webinar will be available for free for one week after the live broadcast. After that the recording will be available with an annual or monthly membership to Legacy Family Tree Webinars.
