Dearest readers! (Said in my best Lady Whistledown impression. IYKYK!) It's been a little while since my last blog post, and I want to take a moment to explain my absence and share some thrilling updates with you. Life has been a whirlwind of activity lately, filled with client projects, planning an upcoming genealogy trip, concluding a 16-month educational pursuit, and preparing two separate genealogy presentations for our community. But fear not, because I am back and eager to unravel the mysteries of our ancestral past with you!
Over the past few months, my schedule has been brimming with captivating client projects. As a genealogist, my goal is to help individuals and families trace their roots and discover the stories of their ancestors. It's been an absolute joy to dive into the past with so many wonderful clients, unraveling their family histories, and revealing the intricate tapestry of their heritage. I am currently working off a waiting list, so be sure to reserve your spot now, and let's explore your family history together!
In addition to my client projects, I've been consumed with organizing the final details of my upcoming heritage trip. Exploring archives, libraries, and historical sites is an essential part of my work, and my trip to Massachusetts, Connecticut, and upstate New York promises to be an adventure. Every step is carefully planned, ensuring that I uncover the most fascinating details and untangle the threads that connect us to our ancestors.
I am thrilled to announce the completion of a transformative 16-month genealogy education program called ProGen Study Groups. This intensive program brought together a group of dedicated genealogists who were eager to enhance their research skills and expand their knowledge. Through rigorous coursework, mentorship, and collaborative learning, I delved into advanced genealogical methodologies, sharpened my analytical abilities, and honed my expertise in various research techniques.
The program covered a wide range of topics, including evidence analysis, source citation, writing genealogical reports, and ethical considerations in genealogical research. It was a challenging yet immensely rewarding experience that has enriched my understanding of genealogy as a profession, and equipped me with the tools necessary to provide even greater assistance to my clients and community.
I am excited to bring this newfound knowledge and expertise to two upcoming genealogy presentations later this year. One of these events is "Unraveling Your Roots: A Beginner’s Guide to Online Genealogy," a genealogical workshop and coffee social taking place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Saturday, July 22, 2023.
Sharing knowledge and empowering others to embark on their own genealogical journeys is a true passion of mine. This program is designed specifically for those who are new to the world of genealogy or seeking guidance in leveraging online resources effectively. The joy of seeing individuals connect with their roots and experience the thrill of discovery is immeasurable.
During this session, we will explore the fundamentals of genealogy research, uncover the hidden gems of online databases, discuss strategies for organizing and documenting findings, and so much more. No previous genealogy experience is required. If you are curious about your family's history, this program will equip you with the essential skills to embark on your genealogical journey with confidence.
Make sure to mark your calendars for July 22nd at 1:30pm. Registration is not required, but strongly recommended. Please click here for additional information and to register. And, as always, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Stay tuned for future blog posts as I return to sharing fascinating genealogical discoveries, helpful tips, and engaging stories from my ongoing projects. Together, we'll continue to explore the captivating world of genealogy and embrace the extraordinary tapestry of our shared heritage.
