Digging Up Your Roots is coming back but we are currently under construction. I spent the long winter months taking the Boston University Genealogy Certificate course. It was hard and very time consuming, but oh so worth it. There were five modules in all ranging from the foundations of genealogy to genealogy as a profession. Each module worth its weight in gold.
The course was finished in time to got to the National Genealogy Society’s Annual Conference held in Las Vegas. This was a weeks worth of intensive learning. If a breakfast lecture/meeting was signed up for, then you could be going for 12 hours, at least, which makes for a very long day. I sat in lectures given by Elizabeth Shown Mills, Tom Jones, Elissa Scalise Powell, and Craig Robert Scott, to name a few. There were lectures on evidence and DNA which were very interesting.
Now we here at Digging Up Your Roots are reformatting our business structure; from business plans to new logos and hopefully sometime in the next two weeks we will be back up and running full steam.
