Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, FUGA, FNGS is one of the most knowledgeable and engaging genealogy speakers I know. You can read a short bio HERE. He was mentioned in the comments section of my Who's Who blog post. I couldn’t put every deserving person on the list because of space constraints so I decided I would do a spotlight blog from time to time on other prominent researchers in the field of genealogy. Even if you can’t attend the big national genealogical conferences or the courses offered at places like Boston University, you can “attend” some of Tom’s seminars.
Here are two free courses from Tom and FamilySearch:
Here are two excellent webinars (not free) from Tom and the New England Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists:
Dear Myrtle reported on Facebook that Tom’s new book, Mastering Genealogy Proof, will be going to press this spring. According to Myrt, it will be in a workbook format with US research examples. Dear Myrtle is one of those Facebook pages you need to “like” to help keep you up to date with what is going on.
I was listening to Tom’s Seeing the Forest and the Trees (and Their Leaves) this weekend (for the 2nd time) and I thought it would be a good time to mention some of his contributions.
