I recently had an opportunity to interview Melinde Lutz Byrne, Director of Boston University's Genealogical Research Certificate program. These courses teach "how to do it right." Topics covered include basic to very advanced genealogy research techniques, including Genealogy Foundations, Techniques and Technology, Evidence and Evaluation, Forensic Genealogy, and Ethnic and Geographic Specialties. The instructors include Melinde Lutz Byrne, Elissa Scalise Powell, Allison Ryall, Thomas W. Jones, Pamela Sayre, and Mary Ann Boyle. The program has now graduated more than 400 students.
This is a high-powered program that is highly respected by professional and advanced genealogists alike.
