Inspiration

From reading Eastman’s blog over the weekend, I found a new website that I had not previously been aware of – the Board for Certification of Genealogists. Eastman reports that they added a skill building section to their website, so I wandered over and was very thrilled with what I found.

On the site are examples of how to publish a family history. I am so glad I found this b/c this is exactly what I would like to do one day, but the task appears so daunting to me. While I would love to do the narrative style, I think I will need to begin with the register style. So, I am hereby declaring that by the end of 2007 I aim to do a published register style history for the first three generations of at least one of my lines. (my top two candidates so far are the McNair and Kilpatrick lines as I am currently trying to research slaveowners and I think that would be an interesting thing to include.)

Thanks BCG for the examples!
