Motivation Monday – Prepare to Teach Kids About Genealogy

I am pleased to report my Branching Out Kids’ Textbooks are on track and will be released March 28, 2012.  On this day you will be able to purchase the textbook in paperback form, PDF, or PowerPoint. The PowerPoint version has the same content as the book but with a few extras. It was designed for the visual, hands-on learner in mind.

The paperback will be available on CreateSpace. The PowerPoint and PDF versions will be available on my website through my E-Junkie store. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to stay in touch with what’s going on with Generations. This is only the beginning of a major kids’ series. Also sign up for my editor, Stephanie Pitcher Fishman’s newsletter at Corn and Cotton. Together this year we will be collaborating on more educational resources. You will want to know what she is working on as well!

The following will be released March 28 and the links will be live on all my blogs and my Generations website.

ProGen Study Group December 2011 Update

Time flies when you are having fun! This fall has been a whirlwind of activity on all fronts. Business has picked up a lot with some exciting Chicago genealogy clients.  The boys have been busy in school and activities. I’m writing a new book to be released by April on Kids Genealogy. And I’m still finishing the NGS Home Study Course and ProGen.

ProGen has been very challenging this fall. We have delved into Research. This means conducting research, writing a plan and report. The members of my group all presented differing research reports. I learned so much from their layout and information included. There is not just one way to write a research report.

January focuses on proof summaries. I need to figure out what I’ll write mine on. I’ll let you know how that goes. April concludes the ProGen Study Group for me. Seems like the time flew by!
