BCG’s SpringBoard Blog Sponsors “A Contest for the Genealogically Adventuresome: Number Modern Family”

The following was written by the Board for Certification of Genealogists:

The Board for Certification of Genealogists’ blog Springboard is sponsoring a contest. This past month’s series of SpringBoard posts on numbering a genealogy has highlighted complex family structures. It’s dense information, and now it’s time for some fun!

ABC’s TV series Modern Family features a blended family like those we encounter in real life. SpringBoard challenges readers to number a genealogy of Modern Family’s characters as if they were a real family.

For complete information and rules see the SpringBoard contest announcement at


I’m a 6th generation Mormon on both sides and a good deal of my work is done about those generations. My husband and I are raising our two adopted African American children and would love to get their roots discovered and indexed. The tree of our family could be quite beautiful. Is there help out there?

Ironic that BCG would sponsor a project involving living people given that aspiring genealogists are prohibited from submitting portfolio’s that include the names of living people.
