As the final feature for 2010 and our holiday offering to members we are releasing at the website today Thomas W. Jones, phd, cg, cgl, fasg, fuga, fngs on “Becoming a Genealogist.” Listening to Tom is always rewarding, both instructive and entertaining. In this conversation he tells about the curiosity he felt as a child about who his ancestors were, reflects on how genealogists “get hooked,” and presents his view on the value to professionals of continuing their own personal research.
While you are at the website take a moment to enjoy others you may not yet have seen. Log in at http://www.ngsgenealogy.org/, click on the Members Only tab, and then click on NGS Videos in the sidebar menu.
From all of us at NGS – we wish you a peaceful holiday season!
