As you know by now, I am always looking for ways to make me a better researcher. Learning opportunities abound if you are willing to take advantage of them.
I am part of the ProGen 18 Study Group which will be underway on January 1st. What is ProGen? It is an 18 month intensive study of the book Professional Genealogy, A Manual for Researchers, Writers, Editors, Lecturers and Librarians. Eighteen months you say! This book is 654 pages long and is of such a nature to require this amount of time. This is a study group/class with writing assignments all along the way that your fellow classmates critique.
I signed up to be a group leader (you knew I would) because I want to get the most out of this opportunity. I am in the 18th group to go through the process. There is a waiting list to get in and I waited for quite a long time to have my turn.
If you are an intermediate to advanced researcher, this is something you really need to think about doing. You can read more at the ProGen website.
