The following announcement was written by the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG):
The Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG)® announces an exciting new addition to its website: a videotape of a BCG Certification Seminar presented before a live audience in Salt Lake City in November 2008 by Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG(sm), CGL(sm), FASG, and Elissa Scalise Powell, CG. Tom and Elissa have conducted this seminar numerous times over the past several years, mainly at national conferences. The seminar includes information about the certification process, the required portfolio elements, tips about mailing the package, expected turnaround time, suggestions for preparing for certification, and many other topics. The two-hour program has been broken into short segments for convenient online viewing.
Special thanks go to FamilySearch for producing the video and to BCG Trustee CindyLee Banks, CG, for coordinating the project.
