Announcing the new Genealogy Research Skills Special Interest Group

PCGS has formed a new Special Interest Group called "Genealogy Research Skills", or GRS SIG for short. Our goal is to study educational books on genealogy research methodology, practice the skills learned, and discuss them for the purpose of improving our genealogy research skills. The first book we will study is Dr. Thomas Jones' Mastering Genealogical Proof .

The SIG consists of two teams–one will meet on Tuesday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. and the other on Wednesday afternoon from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. The teams will meet every other month, beginning in July, on the 2nd Tuesday evening and 2nd Wednesday afternoon of the month.

Both teams will study the same book at the same pace so if someone needs to switch periodically there will be no interruption in their studies. Everyone is expected to read the assigned chapter and do that chapter's exercises before each meeting.

This SIG is open to PCGS members only. If you are interested in joining one of the teams, send an email to with your name, email address, and which team you wish to join. But hurry, because the first meetings are due July 9 (Tuesday) and July 10 (Wednesday) where we will discuss the preface and first chapter exercises.
