STUDYING GENEALOGY: A
To “study” genealogy one must go beyond casually attending presentations and work to learn about specific topics. Each genealogist has a unique background and experience and thus has differing educational needs. This presentation will focus on strategies for learning about sources and methods and will show you how to locate resources to study the topics you need to enhance your research.
Angela Packer McGhie is a professional genealogist who has focused her career in genealogy education. She is a course coordinator at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR), and the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy (SLIG), as well as an instructor at the National Institute for Genealogy Research (NIGR) in Washington, D.C., the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP), and the Virtual Institute of Genealogical Research. She has served on the education committee for the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), as past president of the National Capital Area Chapter of APG, and as the administrator of the ProGen Study Program from 2008-2014. She presently serves as a trustee for the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) Education Fund and on the ProGen board of directors.
