The 2009 BYU Conference on Family History and Genealogy will be held July 28-31 in Provo, Utah. The deadline for syllabus material is June 22.
My presentation is one I have done before: “Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard.” We are allotted 4 pages for the syllabus material and so far I have used 3. Here is a preview of the syllabus material. Please provide constructive feedback.
P.S. I will be presenting on Friday, July 31 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. My presentation is part of the Methodology track. I love to meet my blog readers, so attend the presentation or stop by afterwards and introduce yourself.
At last month’s Family History Expo in St. George, I was interviewed by Lisa Louise Cooke from Genealogy Gems. We talked about the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) and my presentation, Navigating Research with the GPS.
I had a great time chatting with Lisa and the interview is now available as a podcast that you can listen to as well.
Hope you enjoy it.
At the Mesa Family History Expo 2008 held in November, I presented “Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard.” On February 27, I will be presenting it again at the 5th Annual St. George Family History Expo 2009. I am seeking feedback from those who attended my class in November as well as those who have viewed the presentation slides online:
Last November I presented a class titled: Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard. The slides for this presentation are now available on SlideShare. You can catch this presentation if you will be attending the 5th Annual St. George Family History Expo 2009 held February 27-28.
In my presentation, Navigating Research with the Genealogical Proof Standard, I discuss 3 important documents that genealogists and family historians should use:
- Research Plan
- Research Log
- Research Analysis
In the last two and a half months alone, the original Genealogy Research Process Map post received 500 pageviews. Version 2 of the map has only a few changes. Besides fixing two typos, the arrows separating the 6 process steps where moved up next to the step headers. I did this to help it look more like a timeline. Looking at the map, there are three main “rows”: the circle diagram, the process timeline, and the process details. The idea is to start in the middle of the diagram to understand the steps in the process: Define, Search, Cite, Analyze, Resolve, and Conclude.
