Developing the skills necessary to produce work that meets the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS) takes time and effort. This presentation will highlight some of the educational options that are helpful in learning about each element of the GPS including thorough research, citations, evidence analysis, written conclusions; as well as each element of the application portfolio. The goal is to both understand and be able to meet genealogy standards. There are many educational paths to choose from, and both formal and independent study options will be discussed.
This was hosted by the Board for Certification of Genealogists, and was presented to a live webinar audience on October 18, 2016. 1 hour 14 minutes, plus 10 pages of handouts.
