Free BCG Webinar on 17 August: "Standards for Genealogical Documentation" by Tom Jones

 I received this information over the weekend from the Board For Certification of genealogists:



                 “Standards for Genealogical Documentation”
           by Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, FASG, FNGS, FUGA
Tuesday, August 17, 2021, 8:00 p.m. EDT

Genealogy Standards spells out eight documentation standards, which give genealogists guidance for documenting genealogical writing. They also provide guidance for citation content, while allowing flexibility in the sequencing and structuring of citations supporting genealogical statements. This presentation will review the standards and provide examples of applying their principles.

BCG’s next free monthly webinar in conjunction with Legacy Family Tree Webinars is “Standards for Genealogical Documentation” by Thomas W. Jones, PhD, CG, FASG, FNGS, FUGA. This webinar airs Tuesday, August 17, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. eastern daylight time (EDT).

Tom Jones is an award-winning genealogical researcher, writer, editor, and educator. He co-edited the National Genealogical Society Quarterly in 2003 through 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 also speaks at national, regional, and local seminars in the United States and internationally, and he writes frequently on genealogical evidence, proof, and problem solving.
