- Amazon: Save 19% on Professional Genealogy: Preparation, Practice & Standards edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills – “In 2001 twenty-three genealogists collaborated to produce the first-ever textbook outlining professional standards and practices in the discipline of genealogy. Edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills, the groundbreaking Professional Genealogy: A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers & Librarians (ProGen) addressed not just genealogy sources but also strategies and analytical skills, best practices and standards for historical research, and how to conduct a genealogical business. It remains a go-to manual for genealogists. Now a new generation of genealogical educators have given the field an entirely new guide to the profession of genealogy–offering fresh insights and new specialties, grounded in more-solid standards and wider experiences and applications. In twenty-six chapters, written by twenty-two experts and edited by Elizabeth Shown Mills, Professional Genealogy: Preparation, Practice & Standards (ProGen PPS) is an invaluable resource for professional genealogists and students, as well as all family history researchers. “From genetic and forensic genealogy to ethics and contracts, business structures, marketing, writing, editing, and preparing books for press, ProGen PPS promises to inspire thought processes and ignite new discussions”(Billie Stone Fogarty, M. Ed. President, Association of Professional Genealogists).” Regularly $59.95, now just $48.63 USD, plus get FREE SHIPPING if you have an Amazon Prime membership. Click HERE to shop – via Amazon

Your report is accurate, but does your presentation compellingly tell the story? Does your work convincingly summarize the depth and breadth of your analysis? Are you using all the tools available to you to effectively communicate with your clients and engagingly present the story of their ancestors? This presentation will show how to use text and images effectively in client research and why it matters.
