The following is an announcement from the Board for Certification of Genealogists:
The Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG) is pleased to announce that Gladys Friedman Paulin, CGRS, is the new editor of OnBoard, the organization's educational newsletter.
A resident of Winter Springs, Florida, Paulin specializes in post civil war research, immigration topics, and Jewish genealogy. In 2002 she received her credential as a Certified Genealogical Records Specialist from BCG. She is vice president of the Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG) and a trustee of the National Institute of Genealogical Research Alumni Association (NIGRAA). She edits and publishes Minovitz Minutes, a quarterly surname newsletter that reaches more than 650 households in 14 countries. She will assume the helm of OnBoard with the January 2005 issue.
A quest for more information about both her maternal and paternal families triggered Paulin's initial interest in genealogy as a pre-teen, but it was put aside for educational and career pursuits until some twenty years ago. Since then Paulin has held offices in several genealogical societies. She has written articles for Avotaynu, The International Review of Jewish Genealogy, and book reviews for the National Genealogical Society Quarterly. A graduate of Cornell University, Paulin has completed the NGS course in American Genealogy and attended both the National Institute of Genealogical Research in Washington, DC and the Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research at Samford, AL.
OnBoard is published in January, May, and September of each year. Articles cover research and certification topics, along with news of the Board and certified associates. Copies are distributed to BCG associates. The publication is available to interested genealogists as well. Subscriptions at $15 per year may be ordered on the BCG web site http://www.bcgcertification.org. Single copies of back issues are available at $5 each. The web site lists the contents of each issue.
