Become a genealogy expert and pass this expertise on to your ancestors…
Creation and publication of a family tree, a genealogy, a family history is an achievement in truth–at least it should be. Yet, in print and across the internet are some of the most appalling examples of what we call genealogy: People who live 200 years. Children born in places that don’t exist. Women giving birth at Biblical ages. Documents cited that do not name the ancestor or any member of his family.
From where I sit, straddling the divide between manual–writing with pen or pencil on paper–and digital–converting written records to readable text on the computer screen, real genealogy expertise is badly needed. Research tools that work are required.
It’s a fact! Just one hour per day of concentrated and focused study produces an expert over time. There are some behavioral scientists who believe that 30 minutes per day will do it.
And I can attest that daily study has led me to genealogy research success. It really is possible to solve 20-year genealogy problems. I do it every week: Identify the right ancestors. Place them on the pedigree. Then start over with the next generation. Or, follow the same steps on an entirely new lineage–with the same result.
Now, if you are serious about creating and publishing an accurate and acceptable family record for your own ancestors or the ancestors of your clients, I invite you to take this genealogy challenge–BECOME A GENEALOGY EXPERT. Think how you will feel knowing that you have found the right ancestors–not just those who have the same name!
COME to the Family History Expo being held 27-28 June 2014 in Casper WY. Out of the high-rent, high-traffic, high-pressure world we live in. Two full days of concentrated, thorough, research learning—in one of the West’s finest hotels at a price you can afford to pay!
This event will launch you into an expertise that will wow your genealogy friends and astound your own family members! Imagine discovering how to find the records you need, and what you can do to make your genealogy research more effective. When you go home, you will glow with the excitement of becoming a real genealogy expert yourself.
